Does your child with autism ride the special bus or the regular bus? What factors went into your decision?
Jack has always ridden the special bus. With his IEP coming up, this issue needs to be addressed for next year. His big brother will be in 5th grade (the oldest grade on the regular bus) and may possibly be able to watch out for his little brother. Jack hasn't said a word about riding the same bus as his brother, but other kids in the neighborhood (we have LOTS of them) have asked why Jack rides a different bus. THey accept the answer readily, but I wonder. Should we take the plunge and put Jack on the regular bus for second grade?
What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance for sharing!
