Dave had his EEG monitor put on today. We go back tomorrow to have it taken off and will get the results in a couple weeks. I am anxious. I wish I could figure him out. I have a feeling I will be trying for some time before I do. Having 2 siblings with AS coupled with his odd behaviors, then throw in those weird regressions. Alternately he is extraordinarily bright and can seem to figure anything out. Today he was quite the little man. They had the "new guy" put on his probes figuring a 3 y.o. would give him a hard time and they would have to help. The opposite. He didn't say peep the whole time. They even gave him a new teddy bear he has named "Jack" and is sleeping with. How cute!
On another note, have definitely pulled Cait out of school for the remainder of the year. It wasn't worth the stress it was causing her. She was having significant social problems with her peers. One thing we worked on this year was asking for help. She finally went to ask her teacher for help at which time the teacher told her to stop tattling and go sit down. Ridiculous. Teacher thought Cait's problems were minor ones she should be able to take care of herself. yeah, MAYBE IF SHE WASN'T AUTISTIC! That was the final straw. I was willing to work with this woman as long as Cait was doing well. She started having trouble a couple weeks back. I called the specialist, the teacher, etc. Nothing worthwhile was done. Last week Cait started having a lot of stress even about going to school and getting ready. That along with the teachers reaction to her difficulties and that was enough.
On a good note, Mike is doing better with his bug fears, OCD traits, and rigidity. At least something to look forward to!
