They are both in school all day, WOOHOO!!
They get on the bus at 7:15 am and get off the bus at 3:00pm. It is so nice to get stuff done and spend some time with J.D. every week day. They are both still trying to get adjusted to their new schedule, but are adjusting well. Sean seems a little off and I can't really put my finger on what is different about him. I am not sure that he is in the right placement at school and am giving his current placement a shot before I decide whether or not it is working for him. I sort of feel that the closed autism unit is a bit restrictive for a boy who functions so well in a regular environment, but his teacher has an excellent track record with getting non-verbal kids talking. She understands his current communication method which is sign language and is using some augmentative communication devices in the classroom. She says that many kids who learn to use these begin speaking shortly after using these. He is doing well with them. I really like her and met some of the other moms at the open house and they like her too.
