The in-home just called and has finished her observation. She went and watched difficult child at school, and FINALLY, someone with some letters behind their name actually sees the benefits he's getting in the private school. *** Even tho the private school doesn't have a written plan to deal with difficult child, they pretty much keep him 1-on-1 with a teacher or aid all the time. They work REALLY well with him. *** The docs keep telling me we need to get him in public school, get the school to create a social skills group, get the school to provide a 1-on-1, yada, yada, yada, and while the private school doesn't give him Occupational Therapist (OT) (we do, privately) and the public school could, they don't have social skills groups, they won't provide a 1-on-1, etc. At least the private school is giving him the 1-on-1, and the in-home has actually seen how well they really are working with him there. *** Not to say private is the best choice forever, but its the best option we have for now, and now I have someone with some "authority" to back me on it.
