hi everyone so i have a team mtg. set up for wed. with the school social worker and with the new school pyschdoc. I have to be careful with-these ppl if you remember they were trying to place blame on me for difficult child's troubles a matter of mos. ago. Very strange, yet we seemed to have moved past that. yet I don't trust them as I did before. I set the mtg. up because we are still waiting on the mtg. regarding the iep, etc. yet difficult child has been acting odd as of late, i keep increasing the medication slowly, and waiting to see how she responds. As with many of us our difficult child's find the holiday season over stimulating. I am having this mtg. because i want to put things in place for difficult child, and get on the same page as the school incase there is a crash ahead for us. This was the time last year she went into a depressive state, for a long time. Yet this year it seems to be more manic. I felt it as a good idea, instead of them calling me suddenly screaming "immediate intervention" like last year. So, i'm sitting here thinking to myself what types of things can i have them plan out so if it does come to that point we can act instead of fumbling again. One thing I thought of a few is help packing schoolbag, seems minor yet when she flies about mentally she can't remember this and it affects her grades and the teacher gets a little nasty with difficult child when hw is not done done. second is time out of the room. how do i do that one? there is no more asistant in the room at all, so our only option is the nurse to utiliize. i want them to let her go and not deter her if she needs that time to regroup. another is the teacher attacking her verbally when she shows up late, with each medication increase she makes nasty comments to difficult child when she even walks in 15 minutes late, she soo doesn't get it. any other thoughts........???? thanks guys!!
