A member of the community asks:
“My soon-to-be four-year-old son goes to preschool for children with IEP and special needs. (He hasn’t been diagnosed yet.) We have had a few instances, but nothing this bad. Today he was kicking, biting, hitting, cursing at the bus aid. Saying things like you mother***** and so on…
I am so upset about this. His teacher called me to let me know this is his warning if it continues, he will no longer be able to ride the bus. Please don’t tell me he needs his butt whooped, he is a special needs child. He doesn’t benefit from that in any way.”
Community Advice for This Mom Whose Son With Special Needs Might Be Kick off His School Bus
To see what advice the Mamas Uncut Facebook community has for this mom in need, read the comments of the post embedded below.
Just continue being his advocate. One commenter told the worried mom, “I would not listen to disgusting people judging you, or him. He’s 4. Maybe he shouldn’t be in school yet. Maybe he should be in therapy. Keep him close. You are his advocate.”
Another mom added, “I’m surprised that the school doesn’t have transportation for special needs children. If possible request special transportation. And if the school cannot accommodate that then perhaps have a bus monitor ride with your son that is capable of handling a special need child.”
And one person said, “IEP doesn’t require a diagnosis to help out. And as the child is only 4 I’m sure it would be better to wait until he’s a little older to be tested. If the school cannot accommodate him on the bus perhaps look into in-home therapy with therapists that come and help with what is needed.”
