This year my son has worked so hard in school.
It has been a challenge as my son requires some additional services like speech, occupational and physical therapy to help him flourish personally and academically. I see these services as beneficial and it has helped him to prosper in and outside of class.
Also this year my husband and I discussed using medication to help him with an attention deficit disorder which was disrupting his attentiveness and concentration in class. Instead of medication our thoughts were to provide positive reinforcement and to see if things would get better for him.
I was touched when I heard every one of his teachers explain what a joy he is to have in class and that he always puts forth his best effort. He has grown by leaps and bounds. The teacher remarked his attention span has gotten a great deal better. He is able to deal with issues in regards to his peers as well as his schoolwork.
I soaked it all in and felt so proud to be his mother!
My child is growing up and making his own path in life.
