Braggin rights!

Dallas came home with his first 4.5 weeks school progress report today. He was previously dx with moderate to severe ADHD and medicated for it. He's been on NO ADHD meds since June. He began and is presently on a bipolar mood stabilizer that is known to also help PTSD and anxiety disorder issues. There have been no reports of ADHD-like behaviors at school this year. At all.

In general education he received:

S in communications
S+ in mathematics
S+ in social growth and development
NO absences
NO tardies
NO flipped color cards

In his IEP goal/SLS progress report:

1. 2 of 2 Benchmarks - Dallas partcipates in all activities! Making progress - expect goal completion.
2. 2 of 2 Benchmarks - Dallas works very hard in the resource room! Making progress - expect goal completion.
3. 2 of 2 Benchmarks - Good Start! Making progress - expect goal completion.
4. 2 of 2 Benchmarks - Dallas is very successful in his homeroom class! Making progress - expect goal completion.

We are SO freakin happy and proud of him!! And so thankful for good doctors and good therapists too.

Just had to share brag. ;-)

Yea Ryan!

We too have discovered that some of the mood stabilizers help with ADHD. One less med and accompanying side effects yea!

Hi, I came across your blog from "The Accidental Mommy"'s blog. I've only read a few of your posts, but I am riveted. I am a fellow adoptive mom and just started a blog of my own, but have never been through the pain you have had to endure. Thank you so much for sharing your story.

Oh, and congratulations on a great progress report!
