I must admit, tonight went about as well as can be expected. I think I came to a decision on guardianship (or rather power of attorney). It was also nice to find this article over at Disability Scoop entitled “For Transition-Age Students, Mock Store Offers Job Training by Sandra Stokley.
It reminds me of some of things going on over at Walgreens (though I can’t remember the article). I’ll see if I can find it tomorrow and re-post it.
Anyway, it’s always nice to see new programs being created to help these kids and adults with special abilities. It’s even better to see after going over guardianship and some of the awful choices that parents might have to make. It gives me hope!
Tonight I went over to my son’s high school to go through his class schedule and meet his teachers. Now over the years I’ve often felt we got lucky in regard to some of the teachers he’s had and tonight I was reminded yet again of that.
I was talking to his Special School District teacher and as I said to her how happy I was to have already e-mailed all of his teachers early in the year (something I should have done years ago), she told me how she had the chance to train some of the teachers there in regards to working with kids with special abilities.
So when I saw this article, it too made me happy. It’s entitled “Special Education Training Efforts to get Millions” by Shaun Heasley over at Disability Scoop. Music to my ears!
