I thought I would fill you in on the outcome of parent teacher conferences this morning.
I met with Gavin’s teachers for about 30 minutes. They expressed just how well he was doing at school. I honestly wasn’t surprised to hear any of this because I know how well he is doing 🙂
We also talked about a few concerns with Gavin’s regression. We discussed how his handwriting is getting worse as he continues to experience muscular and neurological regression.
However, despite all he is working against, he is doing so incredibly well at school. I’m very, very proud of him 🙂
After meeting with Gavin’s teachers, I went down the steps and around the corner to visit Elliott’s teachers. Truth be told, I was worried about Elliot way more than Gavin.
I knew Gavin was doing well and I also knew that Elliott was struggling. So I was very concerned with how Elliott was doing.
I met with Elliott’s teachers for 30 minutes as well. I was very nervous but very pleasantly surprised at hearing how well he is doing. He is excelling at everything and the behavioral concerns have improved dramatically as well. I can’t tell you how awesome that was to hear.
We still have some things to work on but he’s doing really, really good. Hopefully, we can address these issues we do have with OT.
Once again, I have to say how grateful we are for the boys teachers. They are second to none and had such a positive impact on our kids. We are very lucky.
Great to hear you have what seem to be fantastic realtionships with the teachers. Behaviour is the best thing our children can learn at school.
Are they ready to bypass handwriting for Gavin and go to some other "assistive technology?" It seems they have really stopped pushing handwriting as an essential life skill for anyone with anything that has a medical term down here. As long as he can communicate in writing, who cares if he uses a pen, a keyboard, a stylus or speech-to-text?
