My daughter turning 15 next week has DS. She was very happy going to special school until September this year. She's in a new class which has mostly much older girls and wouldn't go into the class room willingly. Last month the teacher said shes improving and cooperates more, but since last week, she's being more difficult. She comes with me happily till the school gate (we walk to school), but won't go inside. Any amount of coaxing and cajoling by me doesn't work. But when a teacher or volunteer takes her hand, she goes with no fuss. What could be happening here?
It is difficult to say what is happening. Maybe she is apprehensive about something in the class and feels secure as long as she is with someone—either you or a teacher or counselor. Maybe when she is alone in school someone is troubling her. You could ask her school counselor to talk to her regarding this. Usually such special needs schools have trained counselors who can help you out. Take care!
