How about those first days of school?

For us, we started out DS on Concerta (18mg) before school let out last year. They were well aware of our DS's problems. We had a positive last couple of weeks of school last year, so they were already aware he was taking it then. We met the new teacher (2nd grade) and told her about the ADHD and Concerta and about our DS. She is a very experienced teacher and said how she has seen meds do some great things for kids and how she is willing to work with us and with our DS. We both just felt good about her and there are only 14 kids in the class (DS goes to a small Catholic school).
So far, so GREAT. Though, with ADHD we are always cautiously optimistic!
DS has been in school for a few days now (started last week) and he is doing just fine. We stopped going to family therapy for a while. We decided to go back and see the family therapist after the first report card for a check-in session.
Another mom and I are trying to start a small support group for parents of kids with ADHD, or learning disabilities. We'll see how that goes.
But, it sure feels good to have this smooth beginning...I am grateful for it.
