Well, Casie will be starting middle school when school starts again. Everything I keep reading says that I need to start letting her do things herself. How do I know if she is ready? I can already hear the arguments when I pick her up and write down her numbers for the day and find out either she has not tested, or she did not test enough. She will be having PE everday this year, and in elementary school they had it only once a week and she and the teacher could not remember for her to test.
Then there is the problem of a 504 plan, some people I talk to say they did not have one in middle school, but made sure they had one in high school. What is the diffrence? The 504 I had for last year does not seem to fit anymore with going to 7 classes instead of staying in one class. Does anyone know of or have a 504 plan for middle schoolers (Casie will be going into the 7th grade)?
I am so afraid of how things are going to go next year, I can see her not doing what she needs to do so she can fit in with all the other kids. Casie cares too much of what others think of her. I keep trying to tell her it only matters what her true friends feel, and she found out who they were the day she was diagnoised! I know everyone keeps telling me they are just numbers, but I am sorry those numbers end up meaning something, maybe not right now but later down the road!
Well thank you for letting me vent, and if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I am open to listening to anything.
