PC15 is a 10th grader and has been classified since age 1 for speech language issues and now Learning Disability (LD), severe dyslexia. The narrative report was done by the school psychiatrist who I have known for years, on a social and professional basis. Our D's were in drama club and chorus together. Anyway, easy child has an individual style. He has gorgeous curly blonde hair that he wears very long - his nickname is Harpo, like the Marx brother. He wears a full beard. He likes to wear H's old black trenchcoat with boy scout pants and t-shirts. In the report, the psychiatric commented on his hair - "he says it makes him look attractive to girls and that the teachers can't see when he is sleeping in class." Then she commented on his clothing and followed it up by writing that, despite his odd clothing preferences, he is "actually a very gentle, sweet and amiable youngster with a good sense of humor. He is generally compliant with rules, gets along with peers, teachers and adults. He does not appear to have any malevolent or evil intent towards anyone at school!" All I can think is that she was concerned that he is a Columbine kid because he wears a trench coat! I let easy child read the report and he was most upset that she called him a "youngster." On the positive side, they are looking at assistive technology for him. He wants Dragon Naturally Speaking.
