The biggest flaming pile in my life is that my son with special needs, the one on the Autism Spectrum does not have a school for next year. Yes, you heard that right, it is now MID-MAY and I have no idea where he is going to school, nor how it will be paid for. We are transitioning in the middle of elementary school, which is none too easy. Friends ask “Can’t he just stay where he is?” and I want to bang my head into the wall (wait, who’s autistic now?) Hindsight is always 20-20. No, he can’t, he’s in a school that only goes K to 2, forcing a change at this point. We had been hoping that he’d be ready now to go to his twin brother’s public elementary school, which has wonderful CTT classes (for the laymen: Collaborative Team Teaching by a Special Ed and regular teacher, kids w/ IEPs integrated into the regular classroom), but no such luck. He still needs more support and a less chaotic environment. So here we are in limbo.
