This lady is a saint. She is the one person who backs difficult child at school. She works at three different schools. She has helped us so much. She gave difficult child her cell phone number and told him to call her if he ever needs to talk. He did this Wednesday when troubles at school happened. She returned his call Wednesday evening and said she would be at his school the next day. She stopped in and checked on him. I sent her an email tonight regarding "extended time out". Where if difficult child were extremely upset, and needing to leave the building with me to go home rather than get sent to ISS or OSS. I asked if we could add that to his IEP or if that required an IEP meeting. LOL...she replied at 3:13 AM. She said "Yes we can add it, called Changes to an IEP without having a meeting" I did voice my concern of this being abused. That I be called to pick him up if he forgets a pencil. She is going to add it in a way that would not allow that abuse. She informed me that she saw difficult child yesterday and he looked very tired. She said she would get his work together for Monday and Tuesday, but she doesn't want him to feel overwhelmed with work, so she is going to have it "modified". Also discussed difficult child going to school today. He is so exhausted, would it be worth the frustration? Should he just rest and re-coop? would he understand the work being so tired? But he has two tests today. She did say she would check on him if he was at school and have him call if he was to tired. If I felt that would be ok. She makes me feel so good about school. She really works hard with difficult child. She is so young and so informed. She makes a world of difference. Anyone have opinions about attending school vs resting?
