We have not started medication. Our doctor had given us a 'suggested reading' about anxiety...geez, can't find the title at the moment...but basically we are trying to treat his anxiety first. I didn't enroll him in any summer camps or lessons and I'm hoping he'll feel ok with having one classmate over to play before Christmas!
We recently moved to the country and my DS is going to a new school. He's in a smaller class (18 kids) and his teacher seems to truly want to help him feel comfortable. I can see he feels at ease with her, thankfully. Now, the hard classroom work hasn't started so I'm not sure if we'll have the 'attention' issues coming into play soon. Last year was dreadful.
My DD has also started school this year, so I'm sure that will ease some of the anxiety too. (they are best friends, even though there is a 3.5 year age difference)
I think in October he's start seeing an Occupational Therapist again within the school...and I'm planning to be more involved in the school this year, although this is hard with still having a toddler at home.
Little steps, little steps!
