How would Autistic children in a class effect my daughter ?

Hi, I'm concidering a primary school with a specialist unit attached for children with autism. They are in the regular classes as much as possible and they play with the other children at play times.
I just wondered how it would affect teaching for the rest of the class? I know that autistic children need a lot of support and attention, bless them and could be disruptive. I also worry about supervision in the playground, as I know form experience of working with autistic adults that they can become violent and be unpredictable.
I want my daughter to grow up having an understanding and tollerence to all sorts of people, but I do think I'd worry about her as she is very tactile and very sensitive. She is also very easily disrupted.

Bless them and the people who worry about how it would affect their DCs coming into contact with them!!

my son is tactile and very sensitive. He also has autism.

<<Pag repeats 'thank god he is in a special school, thank god he is in a special school...>>

<< and gags at 'bless them'>>

<<and hopes against hope that this is a joke or otherwise Paglet as an adult may be subjected to similar minded people working with him>>

<<actually just goes to lie down and cry>>

Crikey. I think your DD is in danger of having her education ruined. By the fact that she has a total loon for a mother.

LadyMuck Wed 24-Sep-08 15:31:18

You're going to get lynched here mummyloveslucy.

I think that you've been round the school - how did it seem? I thought that you liked the feel. Go with your gut instinct.

Jennyusedtobepink Wed 24-Sep-08 15:31:54

To be honest, mummyloveslucy, I'd be more concerned about how your dodgy spelling and grammar might affect her.

<<PJ wanders off wondering why she even bothered to reply to this hideous thread>>

mummylovelucy- you've had lots of help from parents of autistic children over the last 6 months or so. I've posted advice on a lot of your threads. This makes difficult reading tbh.

Mummyloveslucy is not a troll and has a daughter with special needs herself.

mrsbabookaloo Wed 24-Sep-08 15:33:19

She's not a troll, I don't think. Remember the sweet thread about the letter to her daughter's teacher. Everybody started by thinking she was ridiculous, but by the end she seemed quite sweet.

Sorry, mummyloveslucy, to talk about you like you're not here.

There have been several threads about her daughter's schooling and she is a little bit pfb and naive to say the least, but well-meaning.

Or she is a very cynical troll doing a very subtle and sustained impression that's just the right amount of pfb and naive to prompt reaction.

LadyMuck Wed 24-Sep-08 15:33:27

Mummyloveslucy is not a troll, but has a fairly extreme case of PFBitis. This is a chance for education rather than lynching.

traceybath Wed 24-Sep-08 15:33:46

Don't think this poster is a troll in fact fairly sure her daughter has some type of special needs.

Perhaps just not very well thought out/tacless post?

cheesesarnie Wed 24-Sep-08 15:34:51

sorry mll.after reading other thread i got bit to cross to quick.please accept my apologies.

Jennyusedtobepink Wed 24-Sep-08 15:35:43

Well if that is the case, maybe she'll come back and elaborate so that advice/support can be doled out appropriately.
