Sitting here crying because DS's teachers and therapists went so far above and beyond. He has had a very difficult year (1st grade, ASD) and they have been amazing. Talking to...
them last week, I mentioned that it looked like no one was going to come to his birthday party (last year, invited whole class only to have 4 kids come, so it wasn't completely unexpected, but still feels lousy). They basically turned this morning into one big party for him - made a special banner with his favorite Lego characters, made a pin the head on the Lego guy game, extra recess time, more games, homemade Lego crayons for him...just totally above and beyond to make sure his birthday was special. I am SO GRATEFUL that people like this exist.
That is so lovely. Please write them a note - if you want to go above and beyond, write them each a separate note expressing your feelings. I GUARANTEE they will keep those notes...(more)6-17-2016 12:43pm+3 likes
as long as they live. Therapists and teachers have told me as much.
OP: just unpacked his bag, and it was full of cards the kids had made for him. I cannot get over what an amazing, kind thing they did for him. He has been glowing all afternoon.6-17-2016 6:53pm+6 likes
