Wow, A. had been a sensory mess for the past few days. At home and at school. I wonder if it is the change in the weather? You know how you hear teachers say that all of the kids are wild before a snowstorm? I am beginning to believe they are on to something. Recently our weather went from 90 degrees in the shade to the low 60's. Alex's sensory system, which had been improving, went haywire! He has stopped sleeping, is easily distracted won't listen, bounces off the walls, harasses the pets, rolls around in the floor, and is smelling EVERYTHING! So maybe it is the change in the weather, or maybe it's a full moon!
Recently our town had it's annual festival. A. did a finger painting for the festival, and he got a first place ribbon! I'm so proud of my little artist!

Hi, everyone. Well the "child study" meeting with the school went better than expected. They have agreed to evaluate A, but we are still not getting the OT or behavior evaluation. I guess we will see how things go from here!
School is going fairly well for A. He has good days and bad days. He still has trouble napping and he needs a lot of help with fine motor activities. He is so smart though! I know he will be just fine, some of the most brilliant people in the world have had to struggle a bit, look at Einstein and Mozart, both thought to have had Autism!

Hello everyone. Well I have a meeting with Alex's school Monday morning. A child study meeting. I have been trying to get a IEP for Alex for over a year. I hope and pray that we are getting closer. Alex does well in school, but his sensory needs are causing him to have some problems with behavior and he needs OT for writing and cutting (important pre-kindergarten skills)! He gets private OT, Speech, and PT, but I have to pull him out of school to get him there, which is ridiculous! I have bought books and I am going to learn as much as possible about special education law, I am also taking classes!Eating dinner!
My little artist, he loves to finger paint, but is not crazy about the mess :)

This week's question:With Labor Day weekend just passing, what is your favorite holiday and why?
My favorite holiday is Christmas! I know that is probably what everyone says, but I love Christmas. Time with the family, the lights and decorations, the joy on my children's faces. I am excited because this year Elijah is old enough to understand more about what is going on! And last but definitely not least Christmas is the celebration of my Saviour, Jesus Christ!
