difficult child went from F's to C's on most of his grades this quarter, only because the teacher allowed him to go back and do lost homework and classwork. He has this weird attitude that he has to allow his grades to drop so that he can bring them back up again and get a reward. The reward system is not working the way we intended it to. The teacher wrote a clear, but stern note, saying that he was intelligent and capable but extremely disorganized, and would have an extremely difficult time next yr. He's got to turn in things on time. It is part of the grade. His psychologist has told him that, and the psychiatrist told him that (yes, she actually talked to him about something other than drugs Mon. night! She drew a pie chart and showed him the percentages of grades and test scores.) Today I am dropping off an application to a local Catholic school. It is a nice school, and not as academically rigorous as the school where he is now. I am giving them a copy of his recent grades, incl. the stern note the teacher wrote. I have already told them he is ADHD but they don't know about the Asperger's yet. Wish me luck! They have tons of sports and there is no limit to how many sports activities he can sign up for.
