    October 8 meeting - issues discussed:

    * Cafeteria noise levels and sensory issues

    * Classroom systems that publicly rank children for behavior 

    * Educating school community on inclusion  

    -- Could we install sound absorbing material in the cafeteria to reduce noise? We want the children to be able to socialize. We also understand that the noise and/or smell are overwhelming for some kids.

    -- Do teachers use a color system to publicly rank children's behavior? We'd like to learn more about this practice.

    -- How can we encourage more compassion within our greater community (parents, teachers, staff, children). The book "How to be a friend to someone with Autism" was mentioned as an easy-to-understand blueprint for a letter to the community.
