My handsome little man with his new glasses. He such a good boy, really he is, he wears them with no complaining and tries his best to remember to put them on.
He tries so hard to do the right thing, but some people still misunderstand him. I am so stressed! Micah is having a really hard time at school this year especially with a particular person there. I dont know what to do, I feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place. Right now I'm thinking the best thing would be to take him out of school for the remainder of the year...but like always I just don't know what the best thing to do is. Before this year I was determined to find a house in our school district, but now I dont know if this is the best school for Micah or any of the kids. I was always under the understanding that the school and teachers were there for the student, to help them get the best education, support them and keep them safe......but I've learned this year that this is not the case, the school is for the school. And me, just me is there for my son. I feel alone and under educated, I sit at Micah's IEP meetings facing 6 educated people and I dont know what I'm doing most the time. I am overwhelmed with all the information that is out there, most of which seems like it is in a different language. I have done so much research, but I still feel left behind! I just need a break from all the chaos! As soon as things with Mikey seem to settle something else happens (like them taking his TSS worker). Sorry probly not the best place to vent......oh well its my blog no one has to read it if they dont want to, right?

Those IEP meetings are made to make the parents feel as ignorant as possible. It is their way of bulling you. The dumber you feel, the more depressed you get and in some occasions you tend to give in to thier requests. I have been to many for Emil. At one I got so upset that I couldn't contain my thoughts and blew up at them all. I did learn after that to take someone with the same educational background as they had which happens to be my sister in law with a background in education. When someone speaks their lanuage, it is a completly different story. Isn't there someone from an Autism Association that can go with you and help you feel, well not so lost? I feel for you and wish I could help. If you ever just need to talk or vent just give me a call. I am sure whatever you decide to do with Micha will be the best thing for him as no one loves you like you do and you are the one who has his back.
Love ya.
