The para today was awesome, slthough she started off wrong. She talks WAY too much for difficult child's liking. He finally told her "would you please shut up!". She was offended but later asked me if I thought she was doing okay. I simply explained that he can't do ANY thinking if someone is talking so it's best to just not talk to him unless he talks to you and also that he doesn't know her and to give him time. The rest of the day went awesome. She asked a lot of questions and bounced some of her ideas off me. She is pretty much on the same page as SpEd now. I think this could really work. AND SpEd made a point of telling me in private, "I'm going to do everything in my power to keep the 'other one' away from him". Today ended on a great note. difficult child actually spent some time in most of his classes and SpEd is working to get some things changed. I feel MUCH better now. Thanks for those of you that hung in with my last very long post. I will probably really sleep tonight. I just hope difficult child does too since it's the weekend. I just love you guys.
