I had a staffing yesterday for wm..... 3 hour mtg & I left early (14 people in attendance). Having said that I've seen some improvement in wm over the last few months. He's really trying hard. He brought out a list of goals he'd like to work on ~ goals he came up with by himself with help from attachment therapist. It amazed me as they were the exact same goals written up by his twin (kt) just a month ago upon discharge from Residential Treatment Center (RTC). Twins - even fraternal - have such a connection even when they aren't living together. I just sat there in awe as wm read out his goals. One goal was going to a regular school. Well, I saw that fail for ktbug & brought that up. I was shot down except by the staff that work with both of the tweedles. They knew exactly what I my concerns were. wm had better be a darned sight better than he is now if he wants to attend school rather than day treatment. Even in an contained setting it's not going to work. But I was shot down by all those who don't work with kt & aren't aware of how a "regular" school didn't meet ktbug's issues. Oh well..... just wanted to share with you my awe at twins & their thought processes. Their deep connection.
