I'm looking for some perspective. Am I making a mistake by not educating manster's teachers about his issues/diagnosis? He is doing ok scholastically. Two of the three trimesters last hear he made honor roll, last one he came close. This year is starting off a bit shakey and we may have to increase his stimulant. The kid is learning how to develop strategies for coping with his deficits and challenges and is generally doing ok with school. He gets very angry with me if I suggest he has special needs of any kind. So I wonder if I should push the issue and establish with the school that manster is special needs when most of those needs are separate from academics. I don't know. I listen to others talk about how they educate teachers each year about AS and how it makes such a difference and their kids are consequently happier and better adjusted. Have I made a mistake these years by not trying harder to educate the educators? Sometimes I feel like I did this all wrong and that had I made different decisions earlier on that my kid would be better adjusted and have better self esteem. Sometimes I feel so alone in this.
