It is that time of the year, school begins. For the past 5 or 6 years, my son has had a horrible time with elementary school. He is ADD, but also has many co-morbid disorders that can go with it most people don't know about. All of this and a school system that refuses to go through the motions to make a 504 Plan to accommodate his disabilities is so frustrating. Frustrating for everyone, but mostly the student who just does not understand. Every year going to school was getting worse to the point where he was out of school more than in school. Every morning we went through the same ritual or screaming, crying, complaining about not feeling well to go to school, refusing to get out of the car. Then I would bring him to see his Occupational Therapist.

For the first time in 8 years, my son likes school. Every day! I am savoring the moment If the next couple of weeks are like this week, I will think I am in heaven.

Hugs, Kate
