So here we go again, our 11 yr old 6th grader is full of anxiety. She has been late to class because she has to rush to get her locker open (uh, rushing an Aspie spells disaster), then she loathes PE and the PE teacher seems to have a very gruff manner which doesn't help (she also has physical issues and a Dr.s note requesting adaptive PE, but of course not in IEP cause they keep refusing it)......anyway. I have sent in a note to speak to the Dean.....but I am not optimistic that the schools can truly and effectively help my daughter navigate middle school in a way that will keep open her learning channels.
Wondering how others deal with the start of the school year angst??
