I am a teacher and needed resources to help me handle an upcoming field trip with a child on the spectrum with ODD and behavior issues. It is good to understand the legalities although not practical. Parents, as teachers we have 25 other kids to watch out for on terms of safety. If you know your Child has behavior issues, why are you going to induce extra stress? Just for the sake of inclusion? Schools depend upon teachers to deal with it. There isn’t a resource person to go along the field trip.some schools find it hard enough as it is to get a substitute!!! Parents, it isn’t discrimination it is safety and practicality. Please sign that field trip form to attend and support your Child and teacher.
