New teacher... He has only has time out in resource room twice. Refused to do work only 1 or 2 times and is not displaying any of the anxiety he did in the other class, like banging and making noises. New teacher is recomending he have more OT (Occupational Therapy)! He gets an hour OT once a week. It helps that she has a son who has SID (sensory intergration disorder), Joiner has a lot of sensory problems. I am so glad they put him in her class. She sees how smart he is, and sees how he thinks he is stupid.
I hope the OT will help him. He has had handwriting problems since Kindergarten. Actually his first suspension was because he threw a little fit because he was supposed to write letters, refused to do it and threw things. He has had several suspensions since then, so I had ot put a stop to it. No matter what the punishment is he LIKES to be sent home!! Anyway, his handwriting has not improved much since Kindergarten, and he knows it. The other kids make fun of him, and that makes him mad so he will fight, impulse control is very weak.
Just had to let you all know there IS hope!!!!
