Here's the note Jack's teacher sent home today:
"Yesterday, Jack's friend got into trouble and was sent to time out. While there, he said, 'I'm a loser!' This really concerned Jack. He went over, sat next to his friend, and told him, 'It's okay; you're not a loser.' He was so sympathetic toward his friend! Then, he told his friend, 'You just have to believe!' Then he started talking about Santa. Too funny! He definitely talked his friend out of his funk! What a great helper!"
How sweet is this!
He's been riding the regular bus with no problems, so we're modifying his IEP. I'm still nervous about the bus, but alas, mommies should not be too overprotective. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.
