Hi Rosie, I am not sure if my GS has been seen by an educational psychologist, I know he has been observed for several weeks about four months ago and no formal diagnosis has ben made hence no support yet, my daughter has already talked with the head teacher because she was told some of the reports had not been returned by the school, she was assured they had both been returned from the juniors which hed had just transfered to and also the infant school although they are on the same sight they class them as seperate?
Thanks for your support Ladies, I have been to Italy a couple of times, Lovewine, Venice and Lido De Jeselo which is nearby, maybe somewhere more to the south or Sicily, pricy though. Just had another conversation with ED says she just feel humiliated and very embarrassed that everyone knows her situation at the school and her OH relatives, feels that all her connections to the area except work and a couple of friends are pretty much no existent. School is a problem for my GS as they do not have any support for his needs yet and my daughter says all other mums look at her and GS as if they are mad when he kicks off, which is often on entering school and special occasions like sports day, she feels there is no point in going to sports day or days out any more with the school because my GS just does not take part and there is no way you can encourage him if his mind is made up, she just ends up feeling embarassed for both of them. "mums in the background tutting and saying here he goes again". I am sorry but I would not be able to hold my tongue, perhaps they need to be told he has aspergers and thank their lucky stars thier child does not.
My daughter just feels that then she would then be seen as throwing a wobbly, but I am not so sure, it just makes her feel terribly isolated she has shared this with the teacher at the parents evening last night, academically my GS is doing very well but its everything else.
I am envious of your cruise Rosie sounds lovely, I am not sure what I will do this year especially now I will be cancelling my booked holidays to go up to Norfolk at the end of April to look after my grandson now that the wedding is not happening. I feel like I need a holiday the last one was in August when I went to Devon for a week I have had a couple of weekends away but they are not really long enough to unwind. I have travelled quite a bit in the past, but am not sure about going long haul yet, YD and I have been to Cuba in the past and the Dominican Republic which was very nice. Any suggestions ladies?
ED has gone back to Norfolk but all is not well, her OH wanted her back but has not acted as if he wants her back at all, to be honest I would not have gone, but I can't say that to her, she may try to get a flat of her own she did have a flat before but it will be difficult with my grandson and no formal diagnosis and not much support from anyone, she likes her job and they have held it open for her, they have been much more understanding as employers than her OH, my heart really goes out to her it is a truly awful situation. I have sent her a big bunch of flowers and some chocolates to be delivered on Sat for mothering Sunday, I doubt her OH would be so thoughtful the way things are at the moment.
My daughter went to a parents evening tonight at her sons school, the teacher asked if my daughter would mind explaining what had happened, she did write to the school, but I guess the head of year may not have shared everything. Apparently my grandson had on the Friday before they left for Devon taken his teacher aside and said you are not going to like this Miss but we have to go away to Devon and I don't know when we will be back, its all my stepdads fault. Bless him he is only seven, anyway they came back on Monday only away for a week, probably not long enough, my daughter was quite rightly worried about my GS school place, its a real predicament. I have the day off tomorrow and will be having the last massage at the hospital. Take care, speak soon Cassie x
