So, tonight, I just sent in my request for an evaluation for my youngest son. My oldest son is on the autism spectrum. He's come a long long way since he was first put iin special ed in K. He's going to highschool next year. His academics are going great. His behavior is great. He still struggles with organization and social skills. My middle son is gifted with a learning disability, and the special needs help he's recieved has helped him to blossom and show his stregnths. And I suspect my youngest son is gifted with a learning disability too.
By next year, I will most likely be dealing with 3 IEPS. I am just feeling kind of sad and overwhelmed about it all. Usually, I can be so strong and so positive, but there was something about sending in a request for evaluation for my third son that has set me off. I know it's irrational, but I keep asking myself, what have dh and I have done wrong. What is with the combination of our genetics and parenting that has lead to 3 kids who struggle? I know I shouldn't be feeling so forlorn at the moment, but I just can't help it.
Has anyone else gone through these feeliings?
