So tomorrow I get to do Sam's re-evaluation through the public schools. I spent about 45 minutes last night typing up a list of accommodations that we find ourselves making for Sam, accommodations that affect our day-to-day lives. For instance, we can't do anything before Sam has school, because he needs a couple hours to start mentally preparing himself. If he doesn't have that time, he has a really bad day at school. Its as though he needs to save up all his mental energy to focus at school, and if he needs to expand any of it to deal with anything even slightly out of the norm, like a playdate, or going to the park, he doesn't have enough to get through circle time. I would love to learn some techniques for making this all easier for him. Next year he'll be going to school first thing in the morning, which I think might also help.
