OK great news. Got phone fixed, got in touch with school and I have higher hopes than I did about a week ago. First day and no problems (knock on wood). Spoke to the social worker, I think, he was. He's gonna have the school psychologist sit in on a couple of Emma's classes and get an idea of what steps we need to take make it a great year for her. Thank God. If he hasn't called me by Friday, I'll call him. I called asking for a behavior IEP and explained the situation from last year. He agrees that we don't want a repeat. He's unsure if we need to have Emma fully evaluated for the IEP so that is why the "shrink". Emma's so excited she is in sports and I'm sooo hoping that maybe this can be an outlet for her. Soooo looking forward to a positive year and wishing a good year for all of you too.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

We had a IEP meeting and it was decided that Emma doesn't fit the qualifications. The sports unfortunately didn't work out but we are still having one of the best years we've had in a very long time. The school psychologist thought she might be suffering from a bout of depression so we now she is on an antidepressant as well. She has only been taking it a couple of days so I can't really tell if it is helping her or not as of yet. IEP is Interim Educational Plan. It is an alternative to expulsions and suspensions from school.

oh that sounds great!!! Thank you for making me smile today xxxxx

So this was a month ago, how has it all been going since then? Sports is such a great idea, I so desperatley want Caleb to get involved, but he has little confidence in new things and if he does something 'wrong' (drops a ball or something) he gets embarrassed and that sets off an 'episode'. What does IEP stand for?

Hope it is all still going well xx
