adorably depressing comics about life. updated every other weekday whenever i want because i'm a grownup now
I didn't know that young classes need two teachers in the US that's not true in the UK... my BF is a TA in a school for autistic children and works with pre-k (or reception) kids, and there's only one teacher in that case too!
i think it's cruel and unusual to have a class full of twenty four-year-olds and one teacher, especially if they are autistic. how's the class ratio over there? we're 10 kids to a teacher.however, and i hate to say it, but i'm pretty sure that my georgia ghetto autistic kids could kick your british autistic kids' asses. even if your kids are off the estates.
there isn't 20 to a class there's about 7-8 BUT since a few of them are severely autistic they have to learn to speak through sign language and really should have individual teachers. Since they're young they are also pretty much all not toilet trained and act a lot younger than they are, so it's more like struggling with a class of 2-year-olds who don't physically understand the meaning of yes and no. It's very surreal having to say in sign language 'reading has finished' or 'playtime has finished', when I went in on a couple occasions to help.
Oh, boy... I smell ca-ray-zee hijinks!
Oh my. So this was after the burn that mutha up episode. Now everything makes sense.
rai, i hope you didn't misunderstand my humour there. i work with some special ed and inclusion kids, and this past year some children who hadn't been identified as being on the spectrum (but, ahaha, WERE) were put in our class... with a class of twenty, and only two teachers. we got little help. i am very aware of the sad situation of many special education classrooms and students, trust me. it was just a bit of gallows humour. otherwise i go crazy, because it is extremely difficult.i hope that clarifies things, and i'm sorry if i or my comments upset you.
your comment didn't upset me i'm sorry if it sounded like it did! i was just explaining the situation of the school not in a crabby way x
