We muddled thru today. Ugh. Since his days have been hardest in the afternoon, I decided to take off work early and pick him up at noon, which I did. He had a decent morning, until lunch time, when he kinda started falling apart. But nothing too major happened. However, another little girl has complained of being picked on at school (not by difficult child). She has an extremely protective family, so he dad decided to show up today and sit in for the entire morning. With my difficult child there, a ticking time bomb if handled wrong, the school gave him a 1-on-1 for the time he was there, just as an insurance policy that this little girl's dad wouldn't witness difficult child off his rocker. So he managed a half day, relatively decently, but with the help of a 1-on-1.... When we got home, he had a great day. He played by himself for a long while in his tent and the leaves outside. Later, he decided he wanted to cook and fixed a wonderful meal (with help from mom, of course, but he did most of the cooking) for the family, complete with the fancy dishes and silverware and a candle on the table. After dinner, he and easy child 1's girlfriend made a solar system and hung it from his ceiling. We all truly enjoyed this night. With the exception of getting down on himself easily, he had a great night. I am thinking of just keeping him home all day tomorrow, though. Hopefully give him a long weekend to decompress and regroup, but I don't know. Tonight was so good, it almost seems silly to. I spoke with the director briefly, as well, (and not in private, so not all of my questions have been answered) and she spoke with the teacher who mocked him. THE WOMAN ADMITTED MOCKING HIM! Like I said, we weren't in private and couldn't really talk, but she said things got loud before school started today. I will find out what, if any, lines were drawn regarding this as soon as I can, but at least it was confronted, and the director informed this teacher that not only did difficult child and I report this, but his BT knows about it, as well. Director remains optimistic that we can figure out a plan to keep difficult child and this teacher distanced; I plan to check out another private school and talk to the SPED director at our public school again in the near future. The chiro difficult child has been seeing also has expressed an interest in doing a training class at his school about how sensory integration and processing problems affect his learning and require his environment to be different for him to succeed. I know the Diane Henry clinic I went to really brought home the reality of Sensory Integration Disorder (SID) to me, so that's a positive option, as well. Also, someone asked what kind of slap it was. It was a slap directly to the face - tho I don't know how hard. Oh yeah, BT really took his "I want to be dead" statement to heart and is concerned that, coupled wwith his current complete lack of impulse control, he may try something on a whim, before he even thinks about it, so we will be watching him like a hawk. She tossed around suggesting admitting him, but I'm glad she opted not to for now(I think).
