My new thing is that I want to become a substitute teacher. Did you know I am even qualified to become an actual teacher here? Texas doesn't require an education degree - just a college degree and then a teaching certification. Strange. Anyway, I'm really looking into the sub thing. Could I be a bit more scattered?
I'm getting really antsy for the week to hurry up and be over. Thursday I have an interview for managing a network group and then Friday is my followup with my doctor. I'm anxious about both. Then on Saturday we start Matthew in his HOLYHELLEXPENSIVE 'developmental difficulties' center. He'll be in a group called Rollercoaster Kids where they work on social skills, friend connections, dealing with emotions and other related skills. Here a snippet from the Warren Center web site:
Our Rollercoaster Kids (RCK) program provides help to children ages 3 to 16 and their families. Services may be provided in a variety of settings and are designed to help children who have difficulties with self-regulation, sensory-regulation, behavior, attention, over- or under-activity, and relating to others.
Our professionals use a trans-disciplinary approach with each child. To meet the child's needs, a minimum of two disciplines will work with each child during play-based assessments, and in the planning stages of the therapy program. Also, each pediatric professional will perform as a consultant as needed.
I have great hopes for this one in helping us help Matthew.
I guess Friday is the highest stress-factor. The results of all of those tests I had will be back and I'll find out what my short- and long-term verdict is. I just hope it isn't another situation where the tests only cause more questions to come up, which means more tests and more waiting.
