I wasn’t prepared for the adult world being so different to school. We try and prepare our kids with transitions but no one prepares the parents.
But I wasn’t prepared at Cs latest review to see this chart of the frequency. Their intervention plan said ‘may prove challenging’. Very helpful.! But it dose explain why they are unable to clean his teeth and cut his nails and not take him out etc etc . But they didn't tell me all this. Did they really think because C does not speak or sign - I wouldn't notice these things? Also interesting the only part of the graph they showed me was where there was a dip.
I do think C is now over the hardest part for him. He is now a bit more trusting of a couple of the staff and i now have a couple of allies to tell me things. So there is at last a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
On the way back I asked the man on the barrier why he had let C through - he told me C was following someone who looked liked me but with longer hair!
I had my hair cut during the week.
