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.
