It has been about two years since writing my last blog post. That's twice more huddled at a school conference table to discuss my son's I.E.P. (individualized education plan) with a team of teachers, administrators and therapists to craft the blueprints for his upcoming education & therapies in the following year. I am proud to say that those small glimmers of improvement we had seen two years ago and hoped would grow to be more in Gregory have become true pictures of real change. But it was not possible without the unrelenting hard work, caring and dedication by his team, and definitely not possible without Gregory following along with all he faced. We still have a long way to go, but feel we overcame a major plateauing of skills about two years ago when we unfortunately had an unsympathetic teacher with borderline abusive tendencies & real problems, which is another blog post in itself.
Here is a picture of my G-man from recent days -- the hardest-working 7-year old I know.
