What to do when parents of a middle-school student don't realize their son likely has Asperger's (and the teachers are not allowed to tell)?
My principal would never allow us to share our suspicions with his parents, for fear that they would be insulted and take their business elsewhere (the economy has hit us hard). However, this keeping-the-parents-in-the-dark strategy isn't doing their son any favors, as the other students don't want anything to do with him at this point (they've been VERY patient with him for the past 2 months, but are becoming fed up). He's an only child, and always expects to get his own way. He behaves as though regular school rules, and rules in general, apply to everyone except himself.
I'm considering "planting" a book about Asperger's on my classroom's lending library shelf, as he's a voracious reader, so sooner or later he'd find it and take it home. Any thoughts?
