i want to tell you all about Adams OT, she told me over the phone when i first called her that she could not see Adam because he was too old. i then gave her his history, yall know me, didnt leave anything out. and told her how bad he needed someone to help me help him in the things i have no clue about. she politely refused and then called back about two hours later and said that she thought about it and wanted to meet adam to see what i was talking about. we went to the first appt. and thats when she told me he had no business in lifeskills. she has been in constant contact with me, guiding me to the right resources, people, and teaching me exactly how to deal with all of adams needs that i have been having trouble with making others understand, example, aimless wandering around, adam does this for hrs if allowed. i am the only one that will redirect him at home. dad was told tonight just how bad it is to let him do that, or anything else for that matter, for long periods of time. she has set us up with a FREE advocate to help us through the IEP we are about to request, she has explained things to dad and made him understand that the school has taken major advantage of his appreciation and unwillingness to ask for anything at the cost of Adams education! so anyways, i just wish everyone could find someone like her if they needed her. she told me that once she saw adam and saw how well he is doing but could see he needed the right guidance that is why she decided to take him on. she is a God send for me right now. I also want to publicly thank Yearsoftears and Stevensmom for helping me understand that i had to do something to get Adams IEP set up like a REAL IEP is suppose to be. and to the rest of you, thanks so much for all of your great advise and support, keep it coming!
