Oh, Happy School Days Are Here!! & Something Good Blog Hop

I am so glad that we took the summer to do some independent social skills and counseling for DS#5. If this is your first tune into my blog, DS#5 was diagnosed at 9yr with Asperger Syndrome.

** In second grade he was diagnosed as ADHD, I told them he had sensory problems as an infant.

** In the 3rd grade they refused to call me when an issue came up at school, he sat in the hall alone trying to console himself from the bullies.

** FINALLY, someone suggest Asperger in March of 3rd grade, THEN the principal came back from  maternity leave. She put a stop to that nonsense...

** Then I had gotten enough information and requested an evaluation. Surprise!!!

In our simple action of moving our boys, being that they are the last in elementary school, he is getting the correct services, in a timely manner, and will probably be getting additional services as the next few weeks progress.

And you know what the best part is?? One poor excuse for an elementary school principal will be looking for another job, she has misrepresented our son, our family and me. Oh, I'm not the only one, believe me this is not a singled out type thing. This foolish women thinks that an education out ranks experience and her husband teaches high school psychology. Gee! She thought she was an expert, she just didn't have anything to back it up.

You see, during this time we have been dealing with a lot and I do me a lot of adversity. The principal at the old elementary school was not filling in the blanks, she left out the other things that were going on in our lives. I can't talk about it yet, but I will, eventually. We are involved in a court case, our family members are witnesses to a horrible crime. She tried to use the disruptions from that as common place and our bad parenting. I got news for her...

 

So I am joining in on "Tell Me Something Good Thursday"

1. Our son is going to get the treatments and respect he deserves.
2. People are beginning to realize I'm a pretty patient, good, intelligent woman and mother.
3. My DH and kids will be able to get some counseling on why their attitudes need to change.
4. One BAD principal will be de-throned and the 200+ children at the elementary school will be
safer. Very emotionally unhealthy environment.

ALL THIS AIN'T JUST GOOD, IT'S GREAT!!

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

...and the school wonders why I am concerned about the lack of attention they give to DS#5. These kids need to be taught how to cope in these situations. It just enfuriates me to think that someone in the educational system is neglecting their responsibilities.
Our son is very intelligent and has the possibility to succeed in a career wit
h a colllege diploma. Tell me that a D is OK and not to be concerned about, when the child can make second runner up in the classroom spelling bee!!


Motor Skills Deficiencies
Asperger's syndrome traits in children can vary, though a common characteristic is the delayed development of fine motor skills and gross motor skills. Children with Asperger's often have difficulty with writing, fastening clothes, and engaging in sports. Occupational therapy techniques can help.

We are deciding Thursday about moving the 2 boys to another local school. I am at the point that something has to change. He will have an opportunity to be paired with peers that will give him an opportunity to make friends. I have a feeling that the "favorite" kids or the principal's friends kids won't be allowed to bully him.

Ok, I think my vent is through.

Autism Case Conference and IEP

Well, we the parents made a step forward in helping our son Friday. Some of the school staff have had a very bad attitude about our son for sometime. The lack of cooperation in testing him appropriately has had some negative effects on his being accepted by his classmates. This child is very self aware and has developed low self-esteem due to the poor treatment and being so misunderstood. I do so hope that the positive direction continues to move forward so he can succeed and thrive.
