It seems, at the school that I go to, there are two younger students, one in 5th grade and one in 6th, that both have Aspergers. Today, I was running some errands for my teacher when the counsler walked into the prep room while I was gathering papers, and we got into a conversation, and she told me she had something she was looking into that I might be interested with helping with, and said to drop by her office to talk about it whenever I had time. So, when I was done getting the papers, it seemed I had some time, so I went and discussed this 'thing' which happened to be something toward the direction of mentoring these two children. I wondered why they would need mentoring, and I was told that they have been having trouble socializing with the other students, and have been getting into a lot of trouble. Now, the disciplinary system at the school is very strict, and our principal is not the kind of person you want sitting in front of you because of a refferral. He can be a very loud, mean, angry, and altogether menacing person when it comes to obeying the rules. So not only do these two children have their troubles with the other students and the teachers, and academics, but this mean old principal who doesn't know that they're not trying to disobey.
So, my counsler has been working with the social worker and trying to establish a program or something that would allow me and them to help these children.
My counsler thought I would want to do it because I had experiences such as theirs right about at their time, so I would be well suited for helping them out. I told her I absolutely would do it.
Whadda ya think? Pleas share your thoughts.
