I sent an email to thank you's counselor at the middle school because he was very upset that he was falling behind in class and jsut couldn't remember everything or keep on top of things especially in World Studies. He had a 504 in elementary school for sensory integration disorder and dysgraphia, and his hands have been hurting at school and all evening at home because of the amount of writing he needs to do now (6th grade - first year of middle school). The 504 plan that I have states that they were ending Occupational Therapist (OT) and were going to get an alphasmart for him to use in 5th grade so he would be comfortable with it by middle school because the dysgraphia was going to be a real problem for him. husband did the 504 meeting the last two years because I was sick and couldn't go, but he brought me notes and the plan. He had no idea he signed to discharge the plan at the end of 4th grade, and neither did I. While I am not so happy with that, thank you had straight A's in 5th grade and far fewer absences than ever before - up through 3rd grade he missed at least 1 day a week due to sensory overload. 5th grade he didn't miss a day until January when he got a virus! I LIKE the counselor. She read my email, contacted his teachers and then took the time to go and observe him in class and between classes before contacting me. Way more than I expected, esp as both Wiz and Jess had huge problems in this school. Thankfully thank you has all different teachers and there is a new principal shaking things up! husband is pretty upset about the discharge of the 504 plan. He had NO idea that it was what he signed, he actually thought he only signed the form that said he was at the meeting. I am not so upset because no harm has come to thank you because of it. The counselor will get a new evaluation started if I insist and/or if he starts to have problems - even if those problems are just stress at home that is not seen at school. She seemed very aware that some kids are like that and that it means they need help just as if they fell apart at school every day. I NEVER thought I would say that about someone at this school. So that is how thank you's school is going - and I am just thrilled! NOT that he is having problems, or that the 504 was discharged, but that it is going so well and he seems happy there and that so far all is good and our options are open. This is FAR better than I expected this year!
