My Son Brandon will be starting 6th grade this year. Every year as the School year approaches I feel a sense of dread, anxiety, fearfulness. He has been at the best Elementary School since he started School, he loves School and has the best Para Pro. She has been with him since he started School and has made the decision, and is able to follow Brandon all the way through School. We have never had any problems with our School district and have been very grateful for everyone at his Elementary School. Even with all of this, right about this time of the year I begin to feel so many feelings that I can usually keep in check or experience for a day or so and then move ahead. On top of this Brandon is one of the kids that was droppped from the Ataluren trial in March.
But now he is going into 6th grade, Middle School :( The challenges are so much greater there as far as his classrooms, lunchroom, being farther apart, etc. We met with the people we will be working with at Brandon's IEP at the end of the School Year in May and everyone seems really great. I have even spoken with his new Principal and he seems right on the ball to help us in anyway he can to make sure Brandon has a successful year. But yet I feel all those old feelings creeping back in as I am starting to receive all the back to School notices. The one good thing is Brandon loves School and can not wait to start back. Does anyone else feel this way? any advice to help eliviate some of these feelings that I am having.
