When missing school, many parents don’t realize that even when absences are excused or understandable, absences can greatly impact a child’s education.
My social media feed is filled with back to school photos. And I can tell you just from looking at them whether they’re autistic or not.
My son wouldn’t meet my eyes but I could see the tears in his, “It doesn’t matter,” he said. But I heard him, it did matter.
My school supply shopping standards have dropped considerably as my children have aged. They haven’t noticed…but I’m starting to.
Sometimes it feels like all they do is fight, but sometimes it gets quiet. And when they aren’t fighting, my children are pretty amazing.
