May be just maybe school are finally learning to communicate, I know shock horror.
I got a phone call from Oliver’s tutor on Friday before Oliver had finished school to let me know there had been a incident in school between Oliver and one of his friends. The incident at first was thought to be serious and the tutor got reports from others that were there and then he spoke to both boys together, after speaking to them it turnout that it was all a very big misunderstanding from both the boys and not helped by others getting involved and stiring things a little more. Once he had spoken to them they had realised the misunderstanding and they had both gone back to lesson friends and happy. But he called me to let me know what had happened and that it was sorted but he would keep and eye on things over this week.
I have never had a call like this and normally have to deal with Oliver in a bad way from whatever has happened once he is home, trying to piece information from him while emailing his tutor who can’t do anything as it’s the weekend and then have Oliver bad over the weekend stewing on things from the Friday before and him not wanting to go in on the Monday. Thankfully the tutor called for this reason to let me know what had happened and that I didn’t need to be chasing school.
Thankfully Oliver came out of school happy and we briefly spoke about what had happened.
Some of the comments from the tutor however did concern me, in the fact he didn’t fully understand ASD and I had to point out that some of the things he was saying like not reading body language would be Oliver’s ASD.
But all in all a good step forward in communication and understanding, lets hope it can carry on.
