So you are paying for him to go to a school that refuses to accomodate his needs? Ridiculous

MH was the only kid in her class today. If this keeps up she might actually learn to write her name

Re: Basically it's Wednesday

LOL at Jen. I bet the think again before they try to "cancel" school.

IDK, Janine, about the ADHD. I brought it up at the initial eval, and asperger's too, but they said there were specific traits she had that indicated otherwise. The psych we saw on our own tended to agree, although he only saw her twice. They all say that academically gifted but socially behind is a whole thing unto itself and fairly common, lots of what she does is textbook that, and I wonder if it is because she's a girl she has more complications because teachers/students and more forgiving with boys for her kinds of issues. But then there is a trend in increasing ADHD stats in girls, more of them are getting diagnosed, and they are diagnosed later than boys, etc so who knows. Kind of like how Jess' charge is getting a lot more grief than the special needs boy, KWIM?

The problem is she is just so very inconsistent with her behavior, she has one kind of problem for a while, it gets resolved, then she brings up a new one. The inability to follow multi-step directions is fairly new, that usually only happens like near Xmas, her bday, something super exciting that would boggle any kid. That coupled with the pacing and inability to stay on track in a convo is why DH suspects the allergy meds are melting her brain. God, I hope so. That's an easy fix.

Kari, I totally agree they have to comply. WTH? And I understand desk arrangement is important in classroom management, but i surely she can figure that out. Lordy.

Re: Basically it's Wednesday

OMG, finally. I ordered a tall one-piece swimsuit as part of a big Lands End online sale a while back. My current suit no longer really fits me and if I'm not careful flashes people. It fits beautifully, is not cut obscenely up the hip or butt, doesn't flatten what's left of my boobs. Success! I don't even mind that somehow I got the blue/teal one instead of the purple/black one I *thought* I ordered. Tomorrow I am definitely hitting the gym and getting in the hot tub.

MH is hanging in the library this afternoon. Jerry has home-visits for both his Mom and Uncle today from his supervisors. She has found a stash of felt and yarn I have and is busy "crafting" I don't care what she does, she is quiet!

Cheryl it probably isn't the same, as the special needs boy in their class is (if I listened to the small town gossip correctly) mentally and physically handicapped as a result of a bad car accident he was in as a baby.He is not a normal looking child that acts abnormally. He has an aid with him at all times and is in one on one stuff for a good portion of the day. The kids are great with him, encourage him, go as a class to all of his special programs, etc.
