>M had a good week over all. I told the speech therapist not to engage M in any power struggles.
Talked with Protection and Advocacy (P and A) on Friday. Signed a bunch of releases so that they can look at his school, psych, and probation records. Faxed copies of the Sheriff report to their office, as well as our copy of the IEP, witness statements, and other information we thought important. She made the comment that it sounded like the school needed an education in how to work with someone like M.
Spent some time talking to the school counselor. He didn’t understand why three different stories were told by the people who were there the day M experienced his break down.
Evidently the aide that was working in Special Ed with M has been released from employment at the school. I wonder if this is in retaliation for her statement on the day of the incident.
On this coming Thursday we will have our second meeting with the school. It is scheduled for 1 to 4 on Thursday. Hopefully P and A can be there.
