key noises while typing

David has these old keyboards to play with. We lop the cord off, and he plays with them until the keys start to fall off, or we get tired of stepping on them.  We have gotten as much as a year out of a Compaq/HP keyboard.  It entertains him, and he knows that is the… Continue Reading

an incredible day ~ 3-22-2012

Today was a huge Victory! David went the whole day without major trouble. He was saddened by events in our community, but I am not ready to talk about that. Not much more can be said about the day.  He did what he was asked to do, and what he was meant to do, and… Continue Reading

Stuart Little teaching lessons.

Today’s Rocking! We have had an excellent morning, David still isn’t feeling the best, so he slept in a little bit. He is working on his favourite puzzles, word search, and we started reading Stuart Little by E.B. White today. He reads so fast that I don’t know if he is actually reading, so I… Continue Reading

medication delivery 101 – Creativity a must

So how do you medicate a child of 10 who really doesn’t want to be medicated? You might remember a couple of weeks ago when David was off his meds and had to go to the hospital. Well, one solution was to put a Rittalin patch on his hip.  It is good for 9 hours. … Continue Reading

Today’s Victory 3-21-2012- exploring gifts

Today was a good day.  Some issues with David listening, but that isn’t unusual. During lessons today we did some grammar and spelling worksheets. One of the worksheets was unscrambling letters to form a word.  The shortest word was 6 letters.  Twelve words total, took him less than five minutes. I asked him how he… Continue Reading

Spin the education wheel again for luck

Image via Wikipedia Well, as many of my faithful readers will remember, we are going through a facilitated IEP for our son, David. After a few attempts at scheduling the actual meeting, we finally appear to have a date and time that we can all agree on. I plan to ask for half days of… Continue Reading

hacking facebook again

Mr David keeps trying to hack into facebook accounts.  He does it by attempting to reset the password.  Every facebook account in our house sends me an email any time someone attempts to reset the password.  I then ask the account holder if they forgot the password.  Most of the time, it is being requested… Continue Reading

Missing in Action ~ all part of learning

The last week has just been crazy in our house.  It all started with David threatening to kill someone on his brother’s facebook account, and it snowballed from there. So what have we learned here? We learned that kids can hide pills in their mouth, under the tongue, in the lower cheek area near the… Continue Reading

Life, Liberty and the use of a computer

It’s in the past. That is how David responds when we try to talk to him about the threats that he made toward that individual on facebook. “I don’t want to talk about it, because it’s in the past.” It was last Wednesday February 29.  Just because it is in the past doesn’t mean we… Continue Reading
