two steps forward, three steps back.
My 4 year old ASD son has made amazing progress the past month. It all started when the IEP was signed, and a new, wonderful school was found. He's loved it there, and more importantly, the staff at the new school love him. This, in addition to all the district services (we haven't even begun the regional center home services yet), have led him to initiate play with other children (and run back to me for acknowledgement for the initiating), and look people in the eyes (albeit a bit awkwardly). We've been thrilled. It's been just over one month. Then Monday came, and a "problem" note from school. Lots of meltdowns. This was followed by major issues and stimming at home, and very little sleep. Today, the pattern was repeated. Is this just a Monday thing, or a temporary setback? I'm feeling very frustrated.
