Fight, struggle and scrap every step of the way sometimes, isn't it? First the battle with your body, and then the battle with some of the people around you who are less than cooperative.
I am disappointed with the teachers, though some of what they say might be right. Then again, I AM a teacher (not kids) and do understand what a stressful job it is and how catering for everyone's individual needs can be difficult.
It also occurred to me what a hard time I
would have these days if I were to go to school 5 days a week. To be honest, I wouldn't manage to sit for as long as your son does. I would never manage 5 whole days in a row. Perhaps afternoons only? Even so, would have to have plenty of opportunity to get up and walk around. No wonder he looks tired at the end of the day, poor lamb!
I am sure such a routine would slaughter me! Given he has many of the same problems as older AS'ers, I'm astonished he ever manages it.
I don't know what the answer is, apart from to keep plugging away at the teachers. And do what the other moms have suggested with the section thing. I am in the UK and have no advice since the system is different.
On a side note, I've been thinking of doing a PhD in e-learning and developing home-schooling software. I never liked school, though I was a bright kid - reading was my thing. Reading this has made me all the more determined to pursue it, because I can see there is a need. It would be nice to do something worthwhile like that.
Well, really rambled there, sorry. I hope you make some progress and also that Anthony learns to speak up for himself a little more. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, etc. Good luck!
