Why do I worry? WIP!

Why do I worry so?
Because I care, and because in my worries
I find the Faith I need
to pray the prayers that feel helpful to me and mine!

I got a call this morning from the principal of Shane & Jessica's school--
To talk with me about the 504 plan~
I found out that Sensory Processing Disorder is not a "category" that we can use to classify Shane for protection under a 504 plan.
The principal is going talk with the school district
to see what type of help/support that Shane could have~
She mentioned that she has been observing him, and she gave me a few complements about how I raise my kids, and I imagine that was to keep me happy--(Can I just say she succeeded...?!)
Anyway, she suggested that we might get Shane hooked up with the TAG program (Talented and Gifted)
I am feeling good about this, it seems as though we are on a path that fits my goals! (I am happy!)
I also got a chance to talk with Shane's teacher, -- I found out that although Shane has had a few moments, none of them has been very overwhelming... And she is hoping to have parents in the classroom helping in November! YAY!
In all the years up till now I have almost always had one child at home...
and now both are at school at the same time,
it has taken a little getting used to--
The Empty Nest-- well at least for the 4 hours
in the morning until Shane comes home!

Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. We know spd well in our family. It sounds like you have a very caring principal, which is good. I've found that the strategies which help those with sensory processing disorder tend to help others, as well, so never be afraid to advocate for your son.
