For the past few weeks my children have had fun practice language and math concepts using the Complete Home Learning Suite by Essential Skills Advantage. This is a nice supplement to add into your homeschool. The subjects covered are math, reading, language & grammar, science and geography. The grades that this is geared for is K – 6.
Welcome to Week 3 of Confessions of a Real Mom Raising Autistic Children. The purpose of this is to tell you the good, the bad and the ugly! I don’t want to paint any false pictures that our life is always peaches and cream. In fact at the moment we are in a rough patch. We will get through it in time. This week has been absolutely crazy. Not much accomplished this week but next week the chaos will not be here and we can finally resume back to normal.
Well today Dakota had another melt down this time he was screaming and yelling and at times he threw things at the mention of school. Not sure what is the trigger as I said he could just go to gym today. I called the Case Manager to see what her thoughts might be and to let her know what was going on. I told her we have to take one day at a time because I don’t know one day to the next and she agreed. I told her I would let her know what happens once I called the school.
Well I was going to post my email to the teacher and special ed teacher but I won’t. It was a freaking joke. I am so glad that I contacted the special ed director today. He was very nice.
I explained to him the things that have been going on the last couple weeks. He suggested doing half days temporarily.
So starting next Monday He will start school at 11:50 for that week. The following week he starts at 10. Then they are off one week. When they start again he will start at 9AM. Then the following week he will start at the normal time.
I am so very upset and frustrated as I write this post. I am hoping that someone who is in my shoes and dealing with autism or even a special needs child can give me some adivce or tell me your in the same shoes.
This morning I took Dakota to school. When we get to school it’s always my throat hurts and my tummy really hurts. Well I started asking what makes him so upset about coming to school. His response was I miss you, Brittany, and Sugar Bear. I explained to him that he had to be in school. Well then the nail biting began. He is so full of anxiety and stress his nails are really bitten down.
