sil came yesterday, she is special ed teacher for nashville metro schools and does evals for kids with ld's. she also use to teach with adams principle, she told us yesteray. she evaled adam and guess what? I WAS RIGHT! she told dad i was right, and told dad to do everything i have been begging him to do and to stop second guessing me! anyways, she is taking day off work for IEP meeting, i asked the state right to education guy if her being family would keep them from listening to her and he said it didnt matter as long as she is certified teacher in tn. so, she is going and i still havnt heard from advocate again, hopefully she will come too, power in numbers! sil says adam needs to be in 1st grade, i agree, and she says she is going to throw the book at them if they talk any smack...lol! she also convinced hubby to give them the independent OT bills for them to reimburse us since they have not been giving him ot at school AND that they owe adam money cause it caused him to get behind cause they didnt follow iep, she looked at all records, old ieps that most goals were never met on time, and not even retried the next yr. she looked at the goals and could not believe all the crap in it, like...adam will learn to use crap like !.?,:;...he is in 1st grade for christs sake, he is not even close to ready for that yet....she is going to point that out to them :) and she took the goals from the iep we refused to sign and she is going to get the teachers she works with at metro to look at all the evals and records and work up a GOOD set of goals for adam based on all evals and accomplished goals AND suggestions from independent evaluaters, including from vanderbilt that insists that adam be mainstreamed ASAP! yay! like pulling teeth, but well worth it! good day yesterday! that trip to the "island" really helped me! she also said that we should insist on paraprofessional, (already have) and to not take no for an answer, she told hubby that if we do not get adam in mainstream so he can learn with the other kids, after next yr, from what she has seen, it will get alot harder for adam. one more thing, as we were looking at the records, i noticed that adams teacher talks alot about adams low self esteem, but before this yr, no teacher ever said such a thing. she bring him down, he never said he hated school until he met her and it is documented. sil seems to think teacher was probably put in this class cause she sucked at the jr high (where she taught last yr) and they figured she couldnt screw up with the little kids, so sad schools do the little ones like that, i hope the other parents see through this. i intend on talking to gabriels mom, he has no business in lifeskills. this child can read fluently, math skills are great, he talks clearly, he has some minor behavior prolems, but i think just like adam the enviroment he is in doesnt help out with the behavior cause bad behavoir is the norm in that class. i want to see adam and gabriel in general ed, they both have been ready, gabriel was ready last yr but his grandma doesnt understand the iep stuff, i am gonna work with her this summer and get her trained up!

My 22 year old daughter does not work. Today I told her she needed to have a job by the end of next week. This came after she called me all kinds of names and told me to go "f" myself because I dare to suggest that a job would open up more friends opportunities. Her emotional aggressive outbursts are random and unpredictable. I am always to blame for everything wrong with her life. She...
