I know I have posted about our Lorenzo before so if you don't want to hear another purge you might want to skip this one (I am writing mostly for myself anyway). Yesterday was report card day and the kids had their 2nd quarter awards ceremony at school. As usual Riley came home with his backpack full of certificates and an impressive report card and Lorenzo... well he came home:) I feel it hard sometimes to focus on how well Riley is doing because it is always shadowed by how "not well" Lorenzo is doing. I try and remind myself of the things Lorenzo has made progress in but then we have a day like yesterday ( 3+hr battle over homework and other things and then he ended up falling asleep in Jeremy's arms as he was talking to him) and it just takes the life right out of me. We are now looking at having to get an autism and behavioral specialist to come and tutor him. I know the potential is in there I just do not know how to access it and it seems like the school is not having any success either.
