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!!

SCHOOL STARTS TOMORROW!!

Crayola Third through Fifth Grade Supply PackSchool Starts Tomorrow and I am ready. I love my kids, it is just time for someone else to enjoy their company and help them learn all the fun things that they need to know.

We start at the end of the school year cleaning and taking inventory of supplies we have and what we might need. Have kids in each school level you do get to develop an insiders view of what really is needed. I hit the after school sales in Sept and pick up extras and additional notebooks and consumables.

By going through those backpacks right after school lets out I can also watch for sales through the summer. I have noticed that many office supply stores are running $1 days with many much used items. I had the kids make lists of what they had left, we knew we needed notebooks, pencils, etc and put those right in the backpack. Sunday, we went through the supply list from the store or newspaper and when through the school supply cabinet. All ready for Wednesday!

We have not done so well with the wake up schedules, between blood pressure problems and pre-menopause symptoms, UGH! I did wake up today at 6:30am, I've survived the day. Bed time is coming soon. Then I get to work on another blog I will be launching this week, just about ready.

Hope your school year goes well, I sure hope mine does. I'll fill you in next week on how DS#5 is doing at his new school. I'm anxiously awaiting the Case Conference Committee meeting, say a prayer or cross your fingers, I'm hoping they are more attentive to the intricacies of Asperger Syndrome.

I even got a T-Shirt!!

App Friday: iComm

When I got my iPhone I had no idea how I ever functioned without it. As I got to shopping apps I found that there were quite a few that were aimed at special needs issues. Being that some of these kids can not speak, I never realized how many issues there were that being non-verbal was a component. Please visit this site, check out the apps that so many wonderful people have created, not only for fun, but also for necessity.
They have a Free App Friday with a great variety of apps, you can also follow them on Twitter.

App Friday: iComm

by MOMS WITH APPS on JULY 23, 2010
Welcome to App Friday, our weekly link exchange of family-friendly apps. Today we are featuring iComm from Mias Apps. The developer, Martin Brooks, made this app as a communication aid for his daughter Mia, and their story is no less than inspirational. iComm is an example of how apps developed for people with special needs can make a tremendous difference in daily life (and not just for those it’s intended – but for others as well)...Read more...

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.

This is my all time favorite autism site on the web!

Wrightslaw is the place to go for info about Special Ed Law. You can search their site for a plethore of Special Education Issues.
