There were several links that looked somewhat different, but none of them look
like what you're sharing.

It's not so important for my family, but I belong to a couple of facebook groups
for people with autism and their families. I'd like to be able able to share this
with them if possible. I know you're busy and distracted right now, but I'd
appreciate a PM with the link when you have a minute. Thanks.

Yes, stimulants can reduce hyperactive behaviors in some kids with ASD.
I don't think it's usually the first treatment that doctors recommend, that is
usually something to help mitigate the anxiety.

However last year during our CSE meeting they said my son would not qualify for this class because he does not have any problems with his academics, so they once again assigned him with a full time aide. I'm not sure if that is a valid reason. Didn't really sound like it to me. But maybe it is something I can push for if it looks like Montessori is not a good fit for him. Can we request to not have an aide, even if they say it is a must?

Since public school has their curriculum for each grade level, how would it work if my son tests higher. I don't want him to skip grades because emotionally he is not mature enough. But I feel like with the "curriculum" they can't give him more either. If something is specified on his IEP, would they then be required to do so?

TIA!
In the co-taught classes there are IEP kids and mainstream kids that maybe don't do very well in that particular subject. It is coded just like a "normal" class.

I think an argument could be made that your son needs a more literal teaching method, which the co-taught classes would provide.

You can refuse the aide, or any service being offered, however, if it were me I would have the aide hang in the back of the class and only come forward if the child wanted him/her to. That would make the aide less of a problem for the child in feeling singled out.

Emotionally mature....I'm not going to say it's not an issue. But IF your son really is advanced leaving him with kids 1-5 grades below him is only going to make him frustrated and angry. He needs to be challenged. I doubt these kids that blow through the school system are equally matched with their maturity level. Heck, my son is in 10th grade and I think he should be in about 6th grade, but he still advanced. It's kind of like a prescription side effect, in my opinion. The school has to decide if the medicine (skipping grades) is more beneficial than the side affects (maturity level) are harmful. The last thing you want to do is stunt his intellectual growth.
