I think I might have actually made some headway with my school district.  After the parent teacher conference last night I made a point to make an appointment with the principal of the school.  H2's teacher said that he sat down with him to work on a TPR (??)  she discovered that he couldn't perform up to the standards required.  I asked for help, she said again to talk to the counselor.  I also called the counselor after calming down from the morning freak-out (and the Xanax kicked in) and left a message for the counselor regarding H2's situation.  Why she hadn't gotten back to me regarding the note that I left her from his doctor.

SHAZAM!  After a few specific examples and letting her know exactly how I felt (without sounding like a complete idiot) she is going to speak to the diagnostician and set up some interventions in the classroom so we can do a little evaluation.  I'm still going to ride her butt (aren't you impressed I didn't use the other word?) about what's being done, but for the first time in a long time I feel heard.  Do you know what it means to a woman when she feels heard.?  Its like fat free dark chocolate that taste's good and makes you lose weight.  Or maybe a night with Johnny Depp.  OR BOTH!!

I, too, am glad she is listening to you. It really goes such a long way for the parents to just feel that the school is LISTENING. I totally feel you on this one.

Please keep on her butt about it though. I've learned this from many, many years of experience. :)
