February 1991


This daily correspondence between schools she attended and us gives you a glimpse of our daily life. Most parents of typical children do not communicate on daily basis with the teachers. This gives a reader an insight to how important daily communication is for a child with autism.

Kat has attended school since she was 3 years old. These are school notes that were result of correspondence with her parents and her teachers. We have made comments at a later date reflecting back on the impact of these events. Kats School Notes Index








Teacher: "Kat was very happy throughout the day today. During circle she said the days of the week. She waited to hold Sleeping Beauty until after singing ver well- she chose "willow Walluby" & giggled & lead the circle songs during table-top- she worked well after I showed her what she was earning- she threw a paper on the floor 1x & I had her pick it up and hand it to me nicely. She enjoyed our group friendship game activity of "hot potatoe" & "wanderball""

I have been concentrating on her walking down the hallway w/a peer w/out galloping- if she walks nicely, I let her have a drink at the water fountain & she has been walking very nicely& when the peer wanted to gallop Kat took my hand & walked & said "drink"
