*BLISS*

It seems like the good week at school might not have been a total fluke as I had feared.  The little guy was giggling and smiling at drop off this AM.  He was half dragging Duhdee down the ramp to his classroom on the lower level of the school.  He only got 3 M&Ms this morning, he was moving so fast I couldn’t keep up.

He checked into class, escorted Duhdee to the “Choices” board and didn’t even think about it…he grabbed the “Block” PECs image, made his sentance (“I want to play Blocks”) and raced off to join his friends in the blocks area.  He forgot about us as soon as he finished his sentance.  Duhdee and I were able to stay and chat with the teacher for a moment and then dance ourselves out to the truck to start our day.

    This is great. You both must feel so much better in dropping him off and his eagerness to do something in school. Makes you both have a better day yourselves and everybody is productive.

    Keep up the good work. Everything you are doing must be right.

    I know, it’s nuts! All the credit goes to his teachers…we’re doing just what we were doing all last year but all our effort was useless until his teachers made the classroom a safe space for him.
