I need some help on this one. Adams dad is way to trusting of the school. The school is great with Adam but I think they could do more. Dad says they have a great relationship and I think this is true, for now. I read in wright law a case here in TN where the judge really came down on the school system in another county for not using ABA and having a one on one assistant for an autistic child in the school system. Do not get me wrong Adam is doing great in school and at home but I am thinking about the future school yr. Right now the focus is behavior, which is great. But I live with Adam, he needs redirection ALOT. Dad does not want to rock the boat. I do not want to either but I do want to make sure Adam gets the best education he can get. I am not sure how to get it through dads head that schools only do what they must and unless you request certain things it will not happen. They will not offer things that will be an added expense on them but if we request it they will have to do it if it is a need to help him to continue his education. According to what I read the judge ordered the school to hire an experienced assistant with ABA and working with autistic kids. Adam is in special ed, he is the only autistic child in his class. 10 kids, 1 teacher, 3 aides, these aides are grandmother volunteers. They are wonderful ladies, all of them, but I think in the future Adam will need someone with experience in working one on one with him. I am in no way knocking his school or teachers, but I have dealt with schools before and I know from experience they only do what they have to do and they love parents that that do not ask for anything above and beyond the basics.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
