I don’t normally do posts like this, but I felt that the information it contained was important and I did not want this to become a game of telephone, with the message getting lost along the way. Therefore I would strongly encourage my readers to take a look at this link: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/31/education/31tuition.html?ref=education . It is […]

I’m teleporting back in my life – let’s say about 35 years. I’m on the street where I live in a Long Island suburb. There are about 15 of us – kids of all ages. What do we have in common? We all have guns! Plastic pistols and machine guns that go clack-clack-clack. Many forced […]

There’s No Checkbox For My ADHD Child

April 1, 2009 by  
Filed under Education, Our Kids

What do you do when your ADHD child does not fit into someone’s checklist? We just had a meeting with our school district’s Special Education committee. We had requested an evaluation for our son for an IEP, or Individualized Education Plan, due to his ADHD and Asperger’s. As described in earlier posts, his ADHD and […]
