This is really a two part post-one about the new program and one about difficult child's school day today. We received our official acceptance form from the program difficult child has been accepted into. On the sheet said this service would help because it could provide respite and other wraparound services. Is clearly at risk for hospitalization or being charged with delinquency. The really interesting part was on the back. It said Other services and/or placements considered-rationale for not selection: RCC: not at that level of intervention. Parents still willing to hang in there. It was interesting because we never mentioned an Residential Treatment Center (RTC)-don't know if they talked about that on their own? Just thought it was interesting the way they worded "parents still willing to hang in there." On a side note difficult child had 1/2 day ISS due to shoving the same child he has had problems with all year. Apparently there were substitutes today. The child went by difficult child in line and difficult child told the child they weren't supposed to be by each other. difficult child told the sub who didn't do anything about it. Then a bit later in class they started arguing and difficult child shoved him. We have talked til we're blue in the face about him leaving this boy alone-argh! The art teacher mentioned to husband that difficult child looked out of it today. The principal also called husband in to look at husband when she was trying to process with difficult child about the ISS incident. husband said he was scared when he saw how out of it difficult child looked. Sigh-looks like we will be needing to squeeze in a psychiatrist appointment next week. We saw psychiatrist's nurse today when we were in seeing the neuropsychologist. She said from the description we need to have him seen next week when psychiatrist is back from vacation. Yikes-sorry this got so long-thanks for reading if you got this far.
