Can you hear me screaming?????? UGH. Ok, so D (difficult child 2) was discharged from the hospital last night ONLY because the school district assured the doctor's that the so-called "Autism Specialist" and the Easy Child Coordinator from the county would be at the school ready to welcome him back and assist the teacher with yet another transition. Oh yeah, you know what's coming.....We get to school this morning.....(crickets chirping)....yep, NOBODY! The teacher was thrilled to see D and I ask her, "where's the people from the county"....she rolls her eyes (in disqust at them) and informs me that the AU specialist emailed her and told her she'd get there sometime this afternoon if at all and that the Easy Child coordinator was not coming until tomorrow! OMG! I am ****** of course and so is the teacher....she says they had this day planned for over a week! Now, D seems happy to be there, so I don't make a scene or anything, the poor teacher is doing her absolute best, but she is not an AU specialist and needs some support in getting things right for him. I come home and call the Easy Child lady, no answer, I'm giving her until 12:00 and then I'm calling the DPI. I've had enough. I have to go back to the school at 1:00 to give D medications and if nobody is there, may I just say, the doo-doo is going to hit the fan!! AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! The thing is, I know myself and I am angry yet very calm right now, which is not good news for them. I'm likely to chew them a new "you know what" when I do get them on the phone. These county people think we parents are too scared to take action, that we're too busy crying and stressing to notice them not doing their jobs.....they couldn't be more wrong. I'm thinking a call to the news stations is in order, newspapers, mayor, state representative, senators, you name it! I am SICK, SICK, SICK of our kids being treated like they don't matter.
