Porter started his new school today. He’ll be going every day from 8 to Noon. His teacher reported that he had a good day and by midday he was doing well enough that they already started testing him, which means they began giving him learning tasks to work on which are designed to help him overcome his deficits in language caused by the effects of the autism. Normally, there’s a longer transition period before they can begin but apparently Porter was doing well enough that they just jumped right in. He has to bring a backpack everyday to hold his lunch, extra clothes, and his notebook which the school uses to send us progess reports and information. Today the class played “Duck Duck Goose.”
Porter models his new backpack on his 1st day of school.
