You're right. I have a teenager. I'm always telling her our actions don't exist in a bubble and she needs to protect her digital image for how she wants to be perceived now and into the future.

I read the other post where you said you're doing it all alone? I had no idea you were a single mom. Do you have any support system irl?
Ibwasnt worried about you so much as a random person reading my post.

It's just so hard

Yes. My parents are here. My pastor and his wife watch Izaak for me since he can't do daycares. The girls I work with are awesome. I'm lucky to have a job that understands and let's me take time off whenever I need too.

That's good. Having some people in your corner can make all the difference.

How Old?

My DS graduated from home therapies when young, but by first grade had to have school therapies. And we just rewrote his IEP so he will have a para as he starts 3rd.

He's six. He does have private speech therapy once a week, in a clinical setting I drive him to. And he gets speech at school, too. He said today he and another boy got pooled out to build a marble track together for speech. :)

This feels so familiar. I remember my DS graduating therapies and thinking, “umm, is this for real?” But it really was not,his teachers still had to work with him in different ways and then he just transitioned straight into his IEP, which requires more individualized plans each year!

Good luck, I hope your DS requires less and less intervention each year. That is what we all hope for!

One of the people who worked on his case left, and I was asked if I wanted to have someone else assigned or just forgo those hours. But officially there was no recommendation for less hours. So I ultimately said I wanted those hours filled. He got assigned a new person to his case this week. She came by two hours on Tuesday and two hours on Thursday. I got reminded on Tuesday that I can always decline services, that the therapy group would remain available to me during the transition.

I think I'd rather someone say his progress has plateaued, that he's at maximum medical improvement, or that he's performing too closely on par with his peers to qualify for continued services. But I'm instead getting reminders that I can decline services.
