We met with the advocate for Canyon to help us navigate the high school system to get him on the right track so he can be successful in school. What a knowledgeable person she is. She read his evaluation and had a lot of suggestions for us, and is going to recommend some more testing for him, at the schools expense. Oh boy wait until we show up at the school with her. We cannot move forward until we get a copy of his current IEP, after spring break is over. The one thing that really stuck out in my mind that there is a reason Canyon does what he does, he may not be able to verbalize it to us. Like not using soap, because he is so tactile and everything bothers him, it could be the fact that he cannot stand the feel of soap on him. It really helped having a stranger read the situation and give us some possible suggestions, and know that there is someone else out there to help us with this battle.

I can't believe he is going to high school as I remember the day I met him. Was he 2 or 3 years old? A head of curly, curly hair. Such a beautiful child. I hope everything works out for Canyon. Every one of us has the right to happiness and success. I hope this advocate is perfect for Canyon.
