Hello Friends,

Just thought to take your suggestions before i meet the class teacher.

My son started his school first grade and he is healthy kid and a month back a mentally retarded(MR) kid joined his class and few weeks later MR is siting in my son table in his class,since then i see lot of changes in my sons behavior..

Can i request class teacher or school principle to change his class room ?

Please give me your valuable suggestion on how to make things simple.

Thx
Dan

Ask teacher to move your son to a different seat. Otherwise it may just be your son and not the other kid.

If your intention is do go in and blame a mentally handicapped child for your son's behavioral problems, you won't get far.

What you can and should do, is ask the teacher if anything has changed in his behavior, and what she thinks might be contributing to any bad behavior. You can request she move him into a different group, but from my experience, the teachers rotated the kids around fairly regularly anyway.

You and you child need to realize that children with handicaps are frequently better off in an inclusion setting. It's doubtful it won't happen again through the years. Your son needs to be responsible for his own actions.

This is great advice. If you request input/help from the teacher, rather than go in blaming and demanding a change, things will go much smoother.

I would tell the teacher that you have noticed some behavior changes in your son, and ask if she has seen any. Ask the teacher if she has any advice in preventing this misbehavior. Do it in a nice way and definitely don't blame the other child. You want the teacher on your side.

Parents who come in guns blazing rarely get what they want. ( I am a long time teacher)

If he's cutting up, not paying attention, etc, you can ask the teacher to try putting him with some well behaved students who might be able to model acceptable behavior. That's a legitimate request, I've had my kids moved to different groups because they spent too much time fooling around with their buddies.

What you can't do, is blame the other child.

teacher uses my Kid as translator as my son speaks the same language as MR kid..This is strange and teacher might not 100% say yes as her job might become worse/nightmare in communicating with the MR kid as she cannot speak the MR kid language.

Honestly, it isn't your son's responsibility to act as translator, although I'm sure it's helpful. Doesn't the other child have an aide? Perhaps it's the interruptions to translate that are causing your son's issue.

Be nice, but look out for your child's best interests, and once again, do not blame the other child.
