DS had a problem at scouts and spoke to the leader and sorted it out all by himself.

This was after yelling and carrying on like a pork chop flat out for twenty minutes (Before he left the house) that this minor problem was the worst thing in the world and he might as well kill himself. So to turn that around and come up with a solution was fantastic.

DD's NDIS plan came through this morning.  We pretty much got everything we wanted!

(Helps that what we wanted was about 1/4 of what we wanted for last year of course)

Fricken amazing day yesterday. DS18 has had his learners permit for about two years but only driven three times due to anxiety, depression and trouble concentrating. OT is getting him to build his life skills, by suggesting he plan and make dinners occasionally. Sunday afternoon, DS18 found a recipe, drove to the shopping centre (busy roads, large car park), bought all of the ingredients, drove home and then made dinner for the family. He did insist his brother help him and I got roped into helping as well, but it was such an awesome achievement. We are all still very tired from yesterdays excitement! lmao

123tree oh I have cried so many times this year from happiness to it really chokes me up how lovely this school has been and it's a big mainstream (he gets aide time) it's just for us tells us he is learning off his peers while in support class his peers were scaring him.
He even has a little girlfriend who writes him adorable notes makes his bracelets and hearts and they are always holding hands it's just to adorable.

Youngest’s speechie was absolutely thrilled with him today. He’s made a huge amount of progress.
His teacher also said he’s come so far and blew her away with his written work

The planner at my NDIS plan review yesterday actually understood our perspective that we want to tackle things before they become problematic. And is hopeful that we should get a similar plan to what we currently have. With maybe a few more sessions for OT.

Really good session with the speechie yesterday. We’re working on questions (“where” and “which”) both asking and responding and DD was totally into it, and started throwing in “who” questions, and was spontaneously putting together much longer sentences than usual. Progress!

Well today I found out my DS 8 got a distinction in his ICAS mathematics test. Amazing what a change of school can do for a child who was always the ‘naughty’ child and kicked out of his old school.. after a horrid year last year this year has been the best!

We’ve also just found out he has his favourite teacher next year too... wow just speechless what this mainstream state school has done for our child.

Both my boys are getting awards at end of year ceremonies. I’m so very proud. They’ve both worked so hard, especially the youngest - but he got four different merit cards so gets a bronze award.
Eldest is probably for an academic or persistence

It’s so nice to have these wins... well done everyone, it finally feels like all the effort we put in is making a difference.

Makes my heart sing

DS3 baked muffins (packet mix) for his classmates and shared them out today. He managed to get his point across with signing, and it all worked.

Today both the Play Therapist and the School Readiness teacher specifically told me how well DD was doing, and how much progress she has made. Yay!

After 3 years & 4 months of speech therapy, mr 5 1/2 is finally at age appropriate level of speech patterns & we are finished therapy for now!

Will likely need to be back in a couple years due to literacy issues, but thats a big chunk of my budget back!

Little kid is happy with the change in meds. He said his brain feels happy and good. Love how he refers to his brain in the third person.

NDIS plan was approved for DS with his therapy & community access times ie respite for me

Big kid birthday party was a huge success. It’s was lovely to see him socialising and having a ball with a bunch of kids who just accept him for himself. And they were all encouraging a new kid (to school) through an obstacle course at the pool and cheering him on.

Loving all of these.

DS, who was non verbal up until last year, has been working on his singing. His timing is really good and now he's working on the tune of a song. We've been singing BINGO was his name, baa baa black sheep, incey wincey spider and pop goes the weasel. Lots of fun.
