After MANY years of trying to get the teachers and others at my son's old elementary school to see that my son NEEDS special education help and services, they did nothing, until it was too late!
Since moving to California, the elementary school here saw what I've been seeing for years! That my twelve year old son has Asperger's Syndrome and he qualifies for special education help and services. He might even get his own aide for the rest of this school year! I'm really happy about this! I've been trying to get him special help forever! But no one in Tennessee would listen, not even my soon to be ex-husband. He still thinks that our son is normal, and just stubborn. But he's not normal. He's far from normal. He has to be handled and treated differently than our girls, and he knows it too! He sees things and makes comments about his problems and about what he can and can't do. My son knows he's different.
I am grateful for more opportunities for my son! I am grateful for the school staff finally seeing what I've been seeing and trying to get someone to agree with me about, for years!
