It has been a while since I posted. Life has been somewhat difficult for this sea otter mom.

School is an issue, more than it ever has been. Ryan is in the middle of the 6th grade year and it seems as though every single day is a S-T-R-U-G-G-L-E. Lockers and multiple classes...homework he doesn't remember how to do. Not enough time outside. Too much sitting. Too many people jostling him. Standardized tests testing his disability not his ability. A lot of crying (him and me) and hard work not followed by reward.


So everything sort of goes on hold while we manage life. It is very hard for me to do that, but I am learning.

My next post will be more about school and navigating the rough waters of standardized testing, ARDs, IEPs and other nifty info you will need as you progress on the bizarre and wonderful world of sensory processing problems.
