>I’m a bad blogger – just been incapacitated by huge overwhelming stuff…

Work has been a bit extreme as I just took on new stuff and I do have to try to be wonder woman.

In the middle of a two week break where I’m trying really hard to get things in perspective. Still wake at 5.00 worrying about al the things I haven’t done yet!!!!

Get a grip Norma…

We’ve had some major movement re the schooling thing with Laurie. So tentatively hopeful but scared that it will all go pear shaped…

The Director of Special Needs came round to our house to discuss options for him. This is the plan…

He will enrol in a local school (recommended to us by someone who said the head teacher was amazing – if anyone can make inclusion work it’s her). He wont just turn up this week but will have a phased transition (which does sound very plausable). He will get a personal tutor to help take the educational activity away from family and back to external educators. Then he will spend some time at the school in small bursts.

We haven’t got a co-ordinated support plan but may get one at a later stage. Apparently he requires level 4 additional support needs (not a national measure).

We’ve explained the situation and driven past the school with him. His anxiety levels have, naturally increased, as have ours. We’re walking on eggshells again!

He’s still having CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) for anxiety but he is responding badly as he has to keep talking about his feelings, which is really difficult for him.

I told the psychiatrist that she was wrong to suggest that forcing him into uncontrolled environments to de-sensitize his sensory overloads would be beneficial!! Tim laughed at my presumptiousness – and tried to be diplomatic by suggesting that de-sensitize was the wrong word. She did agree with that and all ended harmoniously!!

I am such an arsey woman…
