I feel like I should share the story behind this picture….This was taken last year, Alexander feel asleep on my shoulder after a day of exhausting frustration. It was our “final straw” day. The day he was suspend from school for things that he should have had an IEP, or at least 504, protection from. It was the day that we decided that schooling from home would be the least harmful education.
We have known that Alexander struggles with ADHD since he was very little. Our daily battles are exhausting and often times simple tasks seem impossible. It seems like we have been fighting for him since the day he started school. After 6 years of requesting an IEP from the school system we finally got it last December(2014). Ironically, it was also the day that I withdrew him from his neighborhood school and he transferred him to the virtual home school.
