Almost a year has gone by.....

This post is long overdue.  There have been a bunch of changes in our lives in the last year.

ASD diagnosis

On February 2nd Robbie received his autism spectrum disorder diagnosis.  I was expecting the diagnosis and was still surprised when they said autism.  Having the diagnosis explains so much.  I have done a lot of reading and trying to understand how this affects our family.


In August we had enough of the school not following his IPP and decided to homeschool.  It really wasn't a snap decision although it may seem like it.  We have wanted to homeschool since day 1, now the timing was right.  We are just finishing our first week of homeschool and it is going well.

I totally get it. My boy got his official diagnosis this summer and although I was expecting it it still hit me hard. I found it easier to homeschool my oldest who is also on the spectrum than dealing with the school. I have never regretted that decision and neither has she. I am going to homeschool them all now.
