I wish the sp ed preschool held him another year as I requested then. We have been paying for it ever since. He’s just turned 12, acts like 10 or even as low as 5 years old, sometimes. We’re using a cyber school at home and this gives us much more flexibility and support than the public B&M school did. It’s so hard to get him to do work, and I definitely feel like I’m putting more effort into it than he is sometimes but he is learning more with me at home than he ever did. If we can get through his aggressive outbursts, ODD, lack of focus, lack of motivation….
