I sat outside and waited on her. We met for over 2 hours. 75% of it or more was discussing difficult child directly; the other time was discussing either her personal experience (her father was bi-polar) or my own experiences with difficult child 1 and wee difficult child. She is going to work with SpEd teacher to remove so-so para from the equation, at least on a trial basis. She was interested to know that my brother and I have both successfully "schooled" difficult child while he was on suspensions without issue. And that I have had no trouble with difficult child in school during "specials". The district consultant started on the FBA today. And wee difficult child had a really good day. Go figure. Anyway, the meeting with director went well. We'll see where it goes from here.
