It’s been just over two years since Puck was diagnosed with Dysgraphia. It’s been a huge learning curve for me – I’ve had to figure out neuropsychological exams, IEP meetings and resource teachers. But what I needed the most was someone to tell me that it’s OK. It’s OK to feel bewildered by the whole process. It’s OK to feel like you’re pitted against the school in a battle that will determine how your child will ultimately learn. Because that’s the way it is sometimes.
However, it’s equally important to get over that feeling and realize that you’re not the only person who has your child’s best interests at heart. Your child’s teacher, the resource team at the school – they’re all rooting for him. They want to see him succeed as much as you do. It’s their job to care. And once you let go of the “war” mentality – you can both get on with the business of teaching your child how to learn.

PS – Meghan O’Flynn (aka MegSanity) has released her new psychological thriller today. Jump over to Amazon to check it out – I haven’t read it yet, but I’m told it’s amazing. It’s already waiting on my Kindle. Review and (maybe if I can convince her) interview with the author to follow.
