Well, you never know what's around the corner. When I picked J up for lunch today, the teacher asked me if I would give my permission for a special teaching professional to come into the school to observe J in class and make recommendations about ways in which he can be helped to learn successfully.... don't know where this sudden proposal to take things seriously and get interventions has come from (my paranoid side things it might be because of J's big outburst on Friday...) but at any rate it is good news. Other "go figure" news... The teacher said that J has been astonishingly good and hard-working all week in class and outside (which J did tell me). So what is that all about?? I asked him and he just said he had decided to try... But if he CAN be like that if he chooses then that means....??
