It was both eye opening and heart breaking. I went with Eric to extra help this morning. He has been going on Wed and Thurs mornings for about 3 weeks now with no change at all. The school psychologist suggested I go with him once, to see if he would do his classwork while I was there. Well, he didn't. He couldn't. I could see that he wanted to. His hand was shaking and his body temperature went up (I could feel his head was getting hotter). At one point, he looked like he was going to cry but he didn't. He was trying to grab the crayon, but just couldn't get himself to do it. I saw it, he was trying. I wanted to cry myself. Luckily I held it in until I left. It was eye opening because I saw with my own 2 eyes what he does. He was clearly having anxiety over this and the teacher agrees it is not behavioral, in the fact that he wants to do it, but can't. Between this meeting and reading the book "The Explosive Child", I am learning so much about Eric. Tomorrow is the meeting with the principal, school psychologist, school counselor, special education coordinator, the teacher, me and my husband, and Eric's social worker will be on the phone. I am not sure what to expect out of that. But I am glad I saw what Eric does in school before that meeting.
