HI, I am known as Jerick. I am 200% sure of my condition with AS. I need no argument to prove it, for I only need a simple diag from the hospital... anyway. I have it, and i don't make many friends in school. I am in 8th Grade (going to 9th) and I have apllied for several technology-oriented magnet programs to suit my liking. I enjoy these things. I want to make friends with people around the country (and the world) cause I have not true friends in my school. I need some help with my issues with school, and I would appreciate as much has as possible, if anyone can, and a reply would be very nice, too. I love to talk about these things, and I hope most of you do too.

-JErick

YAY FORUMS!! !! !

Welcome, JErick.

My son is a seventh grader. To say he has issues at school would be a huge understatement.

So what's going on at school?

Um. well people do what i think is "typical" (I think).... they call me names, they never want to talk to me, they wanna stay away from me as far as they can, and they lie to me for everything and they take advantage of me (the counselor says) and my friends aren't friends, and people treat me like i literally have a disease by giving me some sort of 'ugly' face and walking away from me...

Yeah, unfortunitely that does sound way to typical.

You mentioned a councilor. He pretty helpful?

At my son's school we had to have the teachers reoganize the seating chart so D was up front, near the teacher, and with supportive kids. A whole bunch of rooms changed at the same time so the kids never knew it was to get D away from the brats who were tanting him. It continued in the hall so I asked the principal what he was going to do as harasment of a disablied student because of his disablity is clearly illegal. D never calls himself disabled and niether do I but I wanted the principal's attention. There are srtict laws about this. The principal gave detention to the worse offenders and assigned more hall monitors in the areas D is at. I think it helped.
