I keep running some of the things the AT said yesterday in the IEP. When she was describing Patches she said on a scale of 1-10, she is an 8.5 -9. The abuse they suffered was the worst they have ever heard of or treated. Their struggle will be life long. They would surely have been institutionalized without us.
I agree with what she said. I have said most of it myself. Somehow, it seemed more real hearing her tell a room full of professionals. I am a little sad today.
