I know it has been a week since I have shared some words with you and I am sorry. I have been preparing for the Deacon and Pops to get here on Wednesday. The other obsession has been our first meeting with the school district for Cameron's IEP.
I am still so confused on everything that goes into this, especially since he goes to a Parochial school and so we have the right to services from the public school. Lets just say a lot of phone calls, emails and door knocking has been going on. I am google obesessed these days with trying to understand all the terms. We love our son so much and want the absolute best for him. We are his voice and we hope to lay the path for other families in our situation.
We have learned from fellow parents that we have to speak up and out. Don't be afraid to take that first step and get the help that your child needs in school. In our case Aspergers Syndrome is nothing to be ashamed of, or for others any learning disability is nothing to be ashamed of. Our children will succeed, it might take a little longer and we might go down a different path but yes they will succeed.
Remember that God gives us amazing gifts in the form of children they just might come in different wrappers. None the less they are all amazing and true gifts.
