hello everyone. I dont think I have quite figured out the communication system here yet but....here goes. I am raising my 11 yr old grandson who has high functioning autism, biolar, and ADDH. Last yr he missed the first 7 out of 10 days of school and it was a struggle thru-out the yr. This yr he will be starting middle school August 25. He acts fine now but it is 50/50 whether he will be able to walk thru the doors when the time comes. The community workers have wanted me to put him in a group home to help him "grow Up" but he is fragile emotionally at times and a good boy. He just has seperation anxiety real bad and I think this would do more harm than good. That would be a last resort for me. Has anyone ever experienced any situation similar to this??? It puts so much stress on me sometimes it is almost more than I can take. It is just the 2 of us and I work. I have gone to 3 twelve hr shifts fri-sat-sun so that I am available for as many school days as possible.
