Violet has had various behavioral challenges. She just started Kindergarten last week, but these are things we have seen before. She had two days of school the first week and she's having a full week at this point. Her school is all day, starting at 8:15 and ending at 2:50 except for Fridays which end at 12:30. Her first day was perfect, but by the second day, she was throwing a crayon at a peer, kicking a peer on the carpet, and getting angry at the teacher for asking Violet to look at her. On Day 4, she elbowed multiple students, punched one, lunged at one, spit at another, and because of the physicality of her behavior, was written up and will likely be facing consequences today. One time she lashed out at a student because he was helping clean up an area they were both working in. Another time it was unprovoked and when asked, she stated that she didn't like the student. At home, she's making up for her mild toddler years with tantrums. I want to jump on this and have scheduled an appointment with her general practitioner and would like to see if there's anything diagnosable in terms of behavior as diagnoses lead to services. There is a lot that is just a bit off with Violet and it is becoming more apparent as she gets older. She has issues with emotional regulation as well as interpreting social situations and at times seems to lack empathy. She definitely has a lot of traits similar to high functioning Asperger's, but that doesn't quite fit either. This will be an interesting process and I just hope the school can handle it reasonably as I've heard some things that indicate this is not their strong suit.
