Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while so much going on 😦
Well were do I start, Oliver’s new medication seams to be going well but we have a meeting at school coming up after half term to see how things are going so hopefully it will follow on from the last meeting and keeps going up.
Chessington at the weekend and Oliver for the first time was tall enough to go on all the big roller coasters and that he did and loved them, is this the adhd and aspergers of no sense of danger or is Oliver like his dad and a thrill seeker with regards to rides. I have to say I hate roller coasters but had to try them so some one went on with Oilver’s sister so she wasn’t on her own but then again she loves them to, so I am all on my own on that front thank goodness for queue jumping if I don’t go on a ride then at least I don’t have to wait 2 hours for them to queue and go on the ride. Mine you this is a nightmare for Oliver to do, if you queue you have to carry him and him being 8 years old his a hard thing to do this is becuase he doesn’t like being enclosed and with too many people around him which of course happens in a queue.
Week before half term at school was sports week, this is something i would have thought would upset Oliver for the change going on in school but he loved it … sports is his thing 🙂 He loved trying new sports from Indian Dance to Football a sucess and came home full of what he had done with normally I don’t get any information on what happens in Oliver’s day unless there is a major problem.
I am sure I have more to write and I will have to make time so my blogs aren’t mis matched and all cramped in.
Today Oliver had another school trip!
In previous school trips Oliver has looked forward to them but worried about them for fear he will be with a parent 😦 I have always told him he will be with a member of staff from school because of his condition but he still has worried. I have told school about this and asked for them to tell him the night before which member of staff he will be with, this has worked for the last couple of trip. To remind them on this one I wrote in his home school diary asking them to inform him, and when I collected him from school and asked him they hadn’t told him causing him to be anxious. I managed to speak to the teacher who did check and tell me who Oliver was with, meaning I could calm him with the information that evening. I am not sure why he worries about what teacher or teaching assitant he is with maybe he has to be comfortable with them and the fear of being with a parent and them not understanding him could be another reason. Oliver’s teaching assistant wasn’t able to make this one so he went with a new teaching assistant from another class and he was happy with that before and when he came home 🙂
Like all children Oliver does get very excited about the trip, I am not sure how much information he takes in on the trip or how he is 😦 When you ask him what he did and saw all I get his I don’t know, I can’t remember!
He did say that he had a good time which is a good thing and he has come home very tired and has retreated into this own world this evening, is this because he is finally pleased that the day and trip are over or the day has taken a lot out of him with regards overload of information, and anxieties being raised all day with being out of routine? This is something that I am sure I will never know and all I can do it be there to support him if he needs me.
