|From a progress report at Willow's afterschool program.|
Michael has had a bumpier ride transitioning into high school. However, he did mainly get A's on his report card. He pulled up his Honors Algebra, pulled down his Computer Animation class grades, but we hope that this year is the adjustment year and that his grades will reflect that. Now that he has changed to the Academic Algebra class--he seems to be handling time management and homework better. He is still adjusting to having two social skills/help classes each day--but his team has seen progress and everyone is on a learning curve when it comes to figuring out what makes Michael tick (everyone including Michael!).
Therapy is really going well for him, although very taxing for us all. The therapist seems to be helping Michael deal with his frustrations and giving him alternatives. We are also thinking some boxing classes might help him let go of some of his pent up energy/frustration/anxiousness.
I am proud of both my kids!
