My Son Is In For A Rude Awakening If He Thinks He Is Going To Live Off Of The Fat Of The Land While He Is Out Of School
Monday at 6:06 pm
My son Kameron, who has autism, thinks he is going to be living on Easy Street because there is no school for the rest of the year. He don’t have the concept but I’m sure that he knows that something is going on, and that he should be out of the house by now. I’m very pleased to say that he’s been behaving pretty well because children with autism knows without a clock what time they should be out of the house and on the school bus. One or two moments off and you witness yourself a serious meltdown.
Maybe Kameron has been doing well because I caved in and bought another portable DVD player against my better judgment. This is his fifth or sixth one because after watching his movies, he’ll start being destructive with them until they don’t work anymore. This time, it was gearing toward the same behavior. I took the machine to my mom’s and would you believe that Kameron did not sleep for twenty-four hours (literally) because his mind was on that thing? In spite of the medication he uses to sedate him, he was determined to have that DVD player. Talk about will power!
He’s a bit better with it now. He’s going to be in for a rude awakening because he may not be using it as much because his assistant principal was sweet enough to drop off his Dynavox (a picture exchange communication device) at my security desk in my apartment building. To top it off, Kameron is not aware that I ordered the good old-fashioned Hooked On Phonics, so I’m waiting on that.
Yes, my sweet Kameron, while you won’t be returning to your old school because you were supposed to be graduating, you still will be benefitting from these items. I never knew anyone who didn’t succeed from Hooked on Phonics. I know Kameron may be a bit more challenging because he is totally non-verbal but with a little patience and a lot of persistence, it’s worth a try.
