meeting about difficult child. His case manager, who I think is wonderful, wanted to meet to talk about changes to difficult child's schedule for second semester. We are going to put Occupational Therapist (OT) on consult because difficult child is resisting so much with what they are doing-he hates typing but is willing to write and type when needed for an assignment. He instead will be in a guided study class with his case manager. She runs half the class on social skills and half on academics. The Occupational Therapist (OT), case manager, school psychologist, and one of the classroom teachers were there. They went on and on about all the improvements they have seen in difficult child's behavior. They really enjoy him and love his sense of humor! One example of how well he is doing is they said there is a student who is really homophobic. That student started teasing two girls that were standing next to one another calling them gay. difficult child piped up and said that didn't make them gay. Then boy started calling difficult child gay. They thought maybe difficult child would explode. He just looked at the boy and said no I'm not gay. They were very proud of how he handled it. He is having some trouble in his small math class but they said he is being provoked. The school psychologist said difficult child isn't even really on her radar-he is having that good of a year. Let me tell you, it did my heart good to hear all of this. They said he wants to fit in and now they want him to start acting like a learner. Now if we could just get this behavior at home as well-it would fantastic-I can dream right! I'm so glad we chose the middle school we did for him and that he has such a great case manager!
