Dr. Ernest Bordini answered:

Can kids with mild autism perform well in school?

They often can

Physical_exam
Autism spectrum disorders are complex in terms of cognitive functioning., language, learning disorders, memory, motor and sensory disorders, executive functions, and even rarer neuropsychological factors. Even children labeled "mild" can be very different. Comprehensive neuropsychological assessment to assess these skills can be expensive, but can zero in on learning strategies and needs.

Is a child with autism better off in public or private school?

Depends on level & $

Autism
Cold hard cash is usually the primary barrier to this debate. A child with autism does not necessarily change this discrepancy. Quality of education varies widely between both private and public schools in reality. Look for excellence in teacher training and high educational standards.

Dr. Johanna Fricke answered:

How dose autism affect a child going to school ?

Various factors

Physical_exam
Children >2 yrs. old with Autism are evaluated through the school district by a Multidisciplinary Team Assessment for levels of development & degree of Autism. Then parents & educators make an Individual Educational Plan, placing the child in the least restrictive setting + needed supports. Many kids who start in a pre-K "Autism classroom" progress to " regular ed" class + supports after KG.

Dr. Johanna Fricke answered:

School psychologist wants my child to get tested for autism. Should we?

I'd say yes

Autism
Schools don't offer children access to Special Education supports unless there are real concerns, Be open with them;if it didn't make sense to you the 1st time, request another meeting. If the " A" word surprised you, it may mean that your child has good cognitive skills, but struggles with reading comprehension, grasping concepts in math or relating to peers, often noticed in 3rd-4th grade

Dr. William Goldie answered:

If school says child has autism spectrum symptoms, what happens next?

Second opinion

Physical_exam
A school should not diagnose autism. They may suggest that a formal evaluation be done by a qualified professional who could make an accurate assessment of your child. Then a referral for applied behavioral analysis could be provided. They could work with your school to provide the best setting for optimal outcome.
