We won our battle with the stupid school district here and my son is in private care now, a loving and wonderful environment for him to grow to be a typical little boy. With a headmaster that adores him and a staff that shows him so much attention and care.
He comes home with a smile on his face and the teachers have so much love and he is finally getting taught actual schooling. Which our school district deemed him to low functioning to have an attention span for. Makes my heart hurt and hard to breathe if I imagine how his days were in that horrible public school.
He now kisses and hugs his teachers goodbye and with a skip in his step he is walking out of school.
All this fighting we have done and we won. I should say our son won.
Did I mention he is in skateboard therapy? He chose this activity himself, asking if he could skateboard. Let me tell ya, he is a natural. We have really been given great opportunities in the last few days to help him so much. Finding other mothers of autistic children in our community has been the best experience ever. So much openness and sharing. Willing to reach out and help.
Only good things can come of all this.
Today we dance and hope all will fight as hard for their children. It really does payoff in the end.
As he naps from his long eventful school day, I will sit back and do some more in my studio.
Those darn flags went quick ladies. I am going to plan some more very shabby ones made from vintage hankies that I had stored away. It is so fun to come in and create now, without all the clutter and distraction of too much stuff. Here is one I finished for myself with a linen and blue floral hankie. Pinks are up next :)
