quick update

It's been a while since my last entry and I've opened my eyes since then. On my last post I asked my readers to leave comments about their own positive experiences with the school board/system and much to my surprise...no comments were left. Naive...that is what I was. I was very excited about my meeting with the school board, Dimarco's new teacher and his aba providers from the BI. I was so happy thinking that we would not run into problems so commonly discussed on other Autism blog sites. Well the initial meeting went well. The board seem so willing to help and very optimistic. They even commented on the BI, saying that all students with autism should have such a supportive environment. Dimarco's next year teacher seems nice, no non sence, realistic type of educator...which for Dimarco I feel is a good thing. After about 3 weeks, I was told that the BI was not allowed to observe Dimarco in his new class enviroment in order to help with his transition..what a shame.. What a waste of such a valuable resource.. I don't understand why they would deny such a great offer to help Dimarco transition smoothy next year...???
