My son is in kindergarten this year with an IEP related to autism. He was suspended today for behavior the reason given on suspension form is caused, attempted or threatened to cause physical injury.
He threw a Lego block on another kids head. As far as I know he has never been an aggressive child. He has the habit of throwing things down and laughing at the sounds it makes. This is the first time I had heard of this issue.
In the suspension form they have mentioned the previous intervention attempted is teacher tried redirection 5 times. They have taken a video of him throwing Lego blocks. Shouldn't they have tried to get his attention instead of taking video. I believe he would have listened if they tried to make eye contact with him. Is it possible to ask them to re consider the suspension?
