Well.... remember how Q got bullied off the bus by the driver? so they gave him two new buses by himself....one from the district pool and one from teh contract pool....different drivers etc. Then they switched the afternoon bus again to another one from teh district so it could come earlier (when it came a little late Q was outside waiting too long....not a good scene)... so that was bus 4 he has had that one for a couple of weeks, now they called and said that they have to switch to a contract bus again, they need the one that Q is riding for something. HUH? they get it that we go thru a screening, then train and these people work on a behavior plan and get supplied with reinforcers etc. UGG and when is it gonna start? tomorrow. And when are they doing the training? tomorrow morning at 9:30 but we are at the ortho at that time so I cant go. Nothing to do because they have to drive him that afternoon. If I have to cancel buses, then I have to call both companies now. It just stinks. When to tell him? this is his 5th bus driver/aide combo iin 3 months. The kid who can handle change the least is getting it the most. And I said if he has a bad day, they just ahve to suck it up. the sp ed coordinator called tonight (another story, I just passed it along to the lawyer ....blah) and I asked her if she knew he was getting a new bus again thru no fault of his??? She said no, but she will investigate. I believe it since we have the lawyer. But I asked her to emphasize that this has to be it. NO more switches. Unless they are awful to him...then they get fired this time ok?? I am sure she wont pass that along but.... sigh. So, do I tell him tonight to prep him or do I wait and spring it on him? Either way there will be a period of unrest. His teacher thought it started Monday, nope I told her...check again.... it is Thurs. Now she is freaking out too. she knows that they are in for it and she is not happy with them. I hate everyone right now. I better get over this hormone thing.
