difficult child has Aspergers Syndrome, Bipolar, Adhd, ODD, and severe learning disabilities (right hemisphere deficits) He has average IQ and vocabulary, but he cannot learn to read. His math is also affected, but he has learned to use a calculator so basic math is there. When I say he cannot learn to read, I mean he reads at about a 1st grade 7th month level. Remember he's going to be 16 in just 4 months. He is technically a sophomore, but in actuality does no school work in a traditional sense. He can't read to do the school work and even if he learned to read today he's so far behind that there's no way he could catch up since he hasn't attended traditional grade level classes since he was in third grade. He's spent his days in special education classes and that frustrates him because the kids he's been in class with are for the most part low IQ. Last year he attended four days of school during the month of November. He was so frustrated that he blew and was suspended for 10 days and before he could go back to school we had to have a manifestation hearing. The purpose of the manifestation hearing was to decide if the behaviors that caused him being suspended were caused by his neurological disorders. Of course they were. Anyway, the district wanted to send him to an out of district placement, which also meant out of home. I'm sorry but there's no way I could do that to him. I am all he has. I have to admit there have been times through the years that I have wanted him out of the house, but the school district is not going to say they can't handle my child and therefore I can't handle my child! I refused to allow the out of district placement and demanded they at least try a 1:1 before I made any other decisions as to what was going to happen. I gave them until the first day after Thanksgiving break to get one, which at that time was a little over 2 weeks away. They found a wonderful man, John, and difficult child had a successfull school year for the first time in 3 years. He has been successfull this year, so far, with a new 1:1 Now, back to the reason for the post. He wants to order a class ring and I want to get him one, but I'm not sure now is the time to get it. Like I said he's not really doing high school class work and will most likely be in school until the June after his 21st birthday. So if I order a class ring now he's going to have the wrong class on it, or would it? I don't really know. In the next 2 and a half years he could be ready to enter the work force full time, but who knows? He will begin working half days in a workshop off campus in March to learn the skills he needs to have to even begin to think about working in the neuro typical world. So, if you made it through this, answer me this. Would you order a class ring now?
