Zion’s first couple of weeks of school have been a success! He wakes up everyday and is so excited to go to school. He walks in, puts his folder in the bin, hangs up his backpack and sits at his table. Everyday he comes home and we do his homework together. He seems to really like […]

Zion has had a pretty good couple of weeks. He still continues to throw small tantrums but we are learning how to deal with these in a better way. It’s crazy because I am a Special Education Teacher and have more then 5yrs experience with kids that have all kinds of disorders, so you would […]

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year! I have enjoyed my 2 week vacation. However, it comes to an end on Jan 3rd and I am back to work until Spring Break and then summer break! We celebrated Christmas Eve with family and had a great time eating, […]

So the last 2 weeks have been pretty good up until yesterday (12/17). Let’s start with the good. I spoke to the School Psychologist from Zion’s school and she informed me that his ARD (meeting) date will be January 25th. This will be the day we talk about services for Zion and his start date […]

First off sorry for no video, my computer was not cooperating! Zion has had a pretty good 2 weeks. We did have a great Thanksgiving though! Long story short, my dad was supposed to have heart surgery which put dinner on the rocks. He ended up not having to have it and so we celebrated […]

So let’s start with the hard part of my blog. Zion had a melt down about a week ago and I have to be honest, I have no real idea why. That’s problem with his sensory issues and limited speech, he can’t always tell us what is wrong or what is bothering him. He started […]

So I am writing Zion’s blog in a slightly different fashion. I have been doing a lot of research lately and it’s for 1 main reason: I feel somewhat alone. I know that sounds odd, however it is the truth. You see, when Zion was diagnosed with Autism, he was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism. […]

The Day I Noticed The Signs

I got a call from the School Psychologist where Zion attends his Speech Therapy services. She basically told me that she didn’t understand why Zion was not placed in PPCD (pre-k) based on his summer assessment. If you remember, this is the ARD (meeting) that I had to sit through and cried because they were […]

Well, we are still in the process of trying to get Zion into school. I am getting frustrated because his Speech Therapist is telling me that she believes Zion belongs in the PPCD room, and now I am being told they will discuss it and may need additional testing! WHAT?!?! Are you kidding me?? I […]

Zion started his speech services with one of the local school districts and its honestly been hit and miss. The 1st session he did great, then after that the Speech teacher switched things on him and he shut down. The next session after that, my mom couldn’t even get him out of the house to […]
