What is your biggest hurdle?

Today I would have to say school.  Trying to get my son to understand the importance of school, applying himself and trying his best has been something that we need to work on every day.  

How about you?

Right now DS is playing basketball for a program that offers sports to kids with different (dis)abilities. He gets so nervous when we get there. Once practice starts and then are doing drills n playing scrimmages, he's find. Happy and excited and he does great! It's just that initial nervousness upon arrival.

My son has started to work out with the baseball team.  If he doesn't make the team, they are going to make him an assistant head coach.  So far he seems to enjoy the work out portion, we'll see how the try out part goes..

DS struggles with both reading and writing. In fact. He's more than two grades behind in both. It is heart breaking for me because I love to read and cannot imagine how life would be if I couldn't read and write. It makes me feel so angry and sad. :(

Overall...communication.  My 4 year old is nonverbal.  It's hard.

My son is in the same situation but I had some changes done to his IEP, I have him going for extra help and he is now in High School and this seem to be making a huge difference with him.  

Please let me know if I may be of any assistance to you.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm still fighting to get an evaluation for an IEP.

Thank you Blessed Happy Mom!   I'm so happy that he likes High School. Middle School was a nightmare.

Communication and feeding. My son is 5, and just started saying words. He has a communication device he uses. My son also won't eat many foods. He actually has only been eating solid foods for about 8 months now. Lots of battles over here! But they are well worth the fight. Every time my son takes a step forward, it is so huge!
