As part of the wraparound services, we were offered a "Skill Builder". (Sounds a bit like a superhero, doesn't it?? ). difficult child was assigned a female skill builder, and she will be making her first visit with him tomorrow. Basically, if I understand it correctly, she will meet twice a week with difficult child. Sometimes they will stay here at our house - and sometimes she will take him out for activities. We had to come up with a list of his strenghts and weaknesses and things we would like her to work on with him. difficult child is resistant to meeting with her at all. He doesn't consider himself as needing anyone to work with him on anything. So far, he has been gracious to the staff we've met, so hopefully he will take a liking to her and things will go swimmingly. Crossing my fingers, anyway.
