This level of negativity is sure to harm his already fragile self-esteem. I’d request that it be changed for him, to goals with only positive acknowledgements when meeting the goals, and nothing when not. 1-2 goals only. And they have to be VERY clearly defined and VERY concrete — no interpretation required. This works best for kids with ADHD/autism.

Also, what they are labeling as “argumentative” is part of autism and seeing things very literal and black-and-white. He only sees one way at a given time, so will “argue” to that understanding from all.
