Is that tm, iht, for short? So today is intensive home conseling session agian day. Oh boy. And meetings for the teachers to offer their input as I am poking and proding the 504 specialist to reassess the current manner of supports and providing what is needed to achieve academic excellence. The impression I am getting is that goal is percieved as "students will". My crystal ball in my mind has a vision, perhaps it is just a rerun of the past, playing where the teachers will share their observation that he lacks focus, and missed assignments, and whatnot and 'earned' the current grades. And then they will share that they lack the time with large classes to offer any prompting or to refer to others(me the 504 teacher/specialist) and that they told him to....add that . Round and round we go. What I am noticing is how rehab language like the language of addiction are dominating all behavior health discusions. when the pro-active and fact based start points with the achievable goal and the steps that are part and parcial of the success in all things is dismissed 'to hard' 'student needs to want this' And all the while the student is learning by this process. My son has learned to shrink and feel bad because he doesn'twant the attention. Yet when things go well and he does learn something new he feels GREAT! We don't know what to do...teachers say and then when they DO HAVE THE STEPS TO DO they say 'to busy' and 'to hard'...phoning,e-mail are to much work these days. And they want me to do 'it' but they can not convey what 'it' is until oh, to late. Ok i am trying to be ready for this ...and today I do not have the appointment times and no one is able to give them to me by phone.
