We have a son who is also on the Autism Spectrum, and they were going to throw him out of kindergarten and place him in a hard core school for special kids that he would have been totally inappropriate for him. Your point about NOT listening to professionals and pushing back on their advice, is worth everything. They gave us a summer to tweak his meds and work with his behavior, and he is thriving in school now in an ASD Classroom with support for LA and Math, but mainstreamed the rest of the day!
