Well after getting the information back in Dec and Jan on Ty Christian and trying to work with nursing to change the way every thing is handled ( a lot LESS screaming now) I am still in burn out.
I guess you can tell because I had to take a few months to try to get my balance in all this.
I took some classes on Autism. Like that would fix things...HA! One was with the school system that turned out to be a support group for Aspergers. Not where I am supposed to be, anyway.
Another was a Judevine Autism workshop which was great. Well except for one small detail...they had never worked with a child with Ds and ASD.
Still, the ideas and techniques that we have applied are working. Most of the time.
Of course we are headed up to Atlanta for the "thinking outside the box" conference. I have been homeschooling and
allowing the school system to become involved for the ABA training. I can see now that is not going to work. I think I have to do it. After speaking with the teacher I am more sure than ever. They are not allowed to teach much at all in special needs preschool. He is way ahead and we need to keep it that way. Even if he cant communicate, or function socially, he does respond to me teaching him.
Can anyone share what they are doing? Did you get the ABA therapy or are you having to learn it on your own, like me?
In the great state of Georgia, ABA is not covered by medicaid so far.
What is the state of affairs where you are? LOL we have considered moving!
Lord if it wasnt for Farmville
for the past few months I couldnt have thought all this through yet...nothing like plowing and thinking in the middle of the night! LOL!
