Back to School

Necessary accommodations for keeping on track at school include many things. Of primary importance are teachers who know you are smart, and paying attention, even when autism moves make it seem like you aren’t. 

Allowing time to process information and respond is alarmingly important too, since autistic neurology has issues with motor processing which makes feeling your body in space difficult.

Another important tactical ploy for attention deficit is physical stimulation like deep pressure from blankets, or alloting time for loafing around with music to calm to.

I am taking algebra, human geo, and biology, and I am so stoked to learn more and more.  With laudable efforts from my teachers and aide, I am confident I will do awesome work and learn a lot.

I am hoping my peers are accepting of my autistic idiosyncrasies and are patient with my noises.  I look forward to all that high school has to offer.  Attendance problems due to anxiety can hopefully be a thing of the past if concordant strategies for autism success are used. I want to be at school consistently to be a part of the class of 2018.

  2. So exciting Henry that you are starting high school! It was 10 years ago now that I started high school, but I remember I was so ready for it and excited to experience the thrill of finally being out of junior high. Good luck to you!


  3. Henry,

    Hi! Mr. Simms here,

    I intend to help a lot with in class communication by establishing the time, space, and understanding of your reality that will allow you to express yourself. In our brief meetings, I have already seen how good and thoughtful you are about making yourself understood. I believe I can help your teachers and peers see the same thing quick. No worries.

    I look forward to getting to work with you soon.



  4. Henry,

    I hope Ignition Day gave you the opportunity to feel more comfortable with all of your teachers and got you ready to head back to school next week! We are very excited to have you at North! I am so proud to have you as my student and cannot wait to see the amazing things you will do in high school this year!

    See you Tuesday!

    Ms. Scott
