    eliminating the trantrums."

    Ya think???

    These are the words of wisdom spoken to me today by the district's consultant who is currently doing a functional behavior assessment on difficult child.

    It has restored a tiny bit of hope that something good can come from this.

    She also sees that difficult child wants to do good; that difficult child is not inattentive; that difficult child has major sensory issues; that difficult child is largely compliant; and that difficult child doesn't get the big picture.

    Really, this woman restored a tiny bit of faith and hope.

    We will see what comes from her report.

    Or more accurately, identifying and eliminating the triggers for his tantrums.

    Hope the consultant's assessment makes a difference.

    Bingo, SW.

    So-so para is only with him during "non-critical" times; she is with him for breakfast and lunch/recess and other times when there are minimal expectations. It seems to be working.
