ASSESSMENT TIME:


ABOVE: a couple of photos of the area out Cleveland way (15-20 minutes from our home).. taken yesterday.. it's so pretty!

TODAY:

This morning Griffin is going to see a Child Psychotherapist .... arranged by the school! To try and find out why he is just not learning the same as his peers.
We have waited 13 months for this appointment! Hopefully it will help with SOMETHING?

After that I will drop him back at school and hopefully go home and relax for a while... I'm tired.
Home again... appointment went well... but time will tell if it helps. Griffin needs 'cognitive assessments'... where we were today don't do them, the schools don't do them.. we have to pay for it to be done privately... typical. So I have to wait for the child psychotherapist to send a referral to me before I can go down that road. MORE WAITING. Meanwhile Griffin falls further and further behind his mates.
I'm starving! Must go have something for lunch now....
Teddy has diarrhoea... thought you'd like to know.... ikkky.
Off now to cook dinner.. steak and veges...
End of Day: dinner was yum! Quiet evening.. looking forward to bed. nite nite.

  2. I hope you are able to learn what you need to help Griffin begin to make better progress in his learning. He's a lucky boy to have your tenacious claws latched onto the issue of getting him help.
