secured the right to remain in his general kindergarten classroom and new in-home services
Aaron, a 6-year-old boy with autism, was struggling with behavioral problems and completing assignments in his kindergarten class. School administrators suggested that Aaron be put in a special classroom for children with autism. Aaron’s mom was committed to keeping him in a regular classroom with his peers and sought the assistance of Disability Rights Texas. The advocate assigned to Aaron’s case attended meetings with school administrators and persuaded them to bring in one of the school district’s autism specialists to work with Aaron’s teacher. Aaron will get to remain in the general classroom setting, with a check-in in the near future to determine if the new supports are improving his performance. He is also receiving in-home services to address socialization and behavioral issues.
