Hi, I am so happy to report that Bug has made friends at school! Last year (in K) he knew that the kids were not responding well to him and he never made a real friend in his class, but he is doing so much better this year. He still has a "modified day" and leaves after noon recess, so I get to watch him at recess from afar when I pick him up. It is just amazing! He has made two good friends and has a whole crowd of friends who play with him at recess. His aide and social skills teacher are as surprised and thrilled as I am. Bug is noticing the difference with the kids this year, too, and his self-esteem has really improved in the past month.
