I'll try my hardest to keep this short.
DS has started a new (good) school, this was his second week. He goes 4 days/week 6 hours each day. I'm in school full time and manage to work 12 hours a week at a campus job. I'm living on child support, my tiny paycheck, and pell grant leftover $$.
DS has some developmental delays (motor delays and speech delays). He's very shy around other kids and sometimes acts out with agression when he's extra shy or overstimulated. Tuesday at school his teacher said he's been getting overwhelmed with things, stepping back and looking scared, and then throwing toys. They are concerned. It's nothing new to me, I've seen it happen before.
Today his teacher told me he choked. It was nap time and the teachers were having lunch (in another room) when my DS found a piece of yarn on the floor, put it in his mouth and choked on it. They heard him from the other room and basically ran in to save his life. If they did not hear him my son would be dead right now
They have video cameras on all their classrooms so that is how they knew what happened.
Part of me wants to put my college career on hold and take him out of school completely. But he LOVES this school and keeps asking when he can go back. I'd be struglling financially if I left my job, but I would survive.
Do I give him more time to adjust to this school? Do I start sending him only 2 days a week and not work part-time at all but still go to school? Do I put my school on hold because he needs me? I'm trying to listen to my instincts but I'm not sure what they're telling me. I'm also nervous about starting fall classes because they are REALLY hard so that might be influencing my decision. I feel like he really needs me but I also feel like he likes his school and needs to learn to work with other kids. Any advice??
