>I have taken my blog underground. Seems like some people in the school district took offense to it. They felt threatened by it. So here it is. ndfatheroffive.blogspot.com no longer exists. welcome to afatherofmany.blogspot.com. You need an invite to even be able to read this. As a result, if you know someone who would benefit from reading my blog, let me know their email address. as long as they are not affiliated with our school district, I will let them in. That said, please don’t share what you read here with your school district. They might take offense and feel threatened by it. I won’t tell you what school district we are in. 🙂Tweet #fighting4answrs
>I wish that all of these agencies that we work with for special needs kids would share intake information. More paperwork. Are there any trees left in the world? I have taken to asking if there is an online form I can fill out. The answer is always no. It wouldn’t be so bad, but every form asks for the same information. What happened to the paperwork reduction act?Tweet #fighting4answrs
>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.
