important meeting

september 25 2008


A very bussy day is waiting.

Early in the morning one of my sons is expected in town.
He will be evaluated by a kind of insurance doctor to see if he'll be getting a special allowance which will enable him to get special education and maybe even a special place to live.

I went through it all with his older brother and that time I didn't like the attitude of the doctor at all.
She pretended to know what Asperger syndrome is, but when she couldn't escape to answer, it turned out she didn't know anything about it.

Now society as a whole is less willing to help people with special needs, I expect even a worse meeting.
It's said that these doctors won't decide whether a person is able to work, but in fact they do.

I think my son first needs to get proper education.
There's a school waiting for him, but he needs special permission.

When tomorrow goes well, all will be well.

So keep your fingers crossed.

  2. One of my son's has Asperger's. Fortunately we live in an area with a knowledgeable and accommodating school district that provided the services he needed. He is now in college where he also qualified for support. He is doing well.
    There is light at the end of this tunnel for you and your son.
    Feel free to contact me if you wish.
