My kids start tomorrow! My Aspie son is a sophomore this year and mainstreamed and will be taking driver's ed and I'm crossing my fingers, but he really had a good time at orientation and waved to everyone and stopped to talk to his best friend. L. is very friendly in a familiar environment and he's been at this school since fourth grade--it's small and he knows everyone. (Get him in a new situation and you see a different kid who won't even meet anyone's eyes, but I digress): My feeling here is a little nervous. My daughter is going into eighth grade. This year we "choiced" her into a big middle school. She's going from a total class of 38 to a class of about 350. It was her wish and, after we all discussed it and visited the school, we agreed to let her go. I have to drive her each day. If you choose another school district, you drive . N. is very Learning Disability (LD) and doesn't always understand what the teacher says (she has an auditory processing problem). She also has trouble paying attention, probably because of her Auditory Processing Disorders (APD), AND she has short term memory problems. She'll be getting help in the Resource Center and has an IEP, but color me terrified. She's very social and athletic and has tons of friends there, but...it's the academics I'm afraid of. So...how do you all feel? Jittery, like me?
