Now Reading: A Rave Review of My Son’s Special Needs School
October 24, 2016
It was on August 13, 2015 that I wrote a blog post called “My Son Didn’t Get Into the School We Wanted for September”
“So we had to settle on his “safety school” which is a 30 mile, over a bridge, 30 minute drive away…
So for the first time EVER we’re going to have to put the king on the school bus each day.
And that is going to be a HUGE adjustment for all of us. And the king who likes to sleep late sometimes and sometimes has seizures in the mornings will have to get his butt up extra early to get on a school bus…
And don’t get me wrong, this safety school really is a great school too… it’s just not as great as the other one and much further away and so much more of a life change and adjustment for all of us…”
The other thing I love about this school? They “get” my kid. Both the teacher / staff last year and this year.
We went to the school open house last week as well and met with the teacher and staff. And these people have only had my kid in their class for a month and a half. And they already seem to get him. They know when he can’t do something VS doesn’t want to do something. They seem to talk to him appropriately, and push him when it’s necessary. Basically, they get his personality, and I am so happy to see that. That is HUGE!
We are so happy that the king has the potential to be at this school until he is 21 years old.
