Conor has been anxious to return to school; literally counting down each day and telling Mom and Dad how many days left until school. Today was ONE DAY left!. Last year we did some transition planning for Conor's move from Middle School to High School. Together with Middle School, High School and District 18 representatives we prepared Conor, as best we could, for the transition to High School. The planning included actual visits to Leo Hayes High School and work with the UNB-CEL Autism Intervention trained Teacher Assistants who will be working with Conor this year. They also visited Conor at Middle School and spent some time working with him there before the end of the year. Hopefully that familiarity with the place, and with some key people, will help ensure a smooth transition. Today, with more fine weather, I took Conor for a visit to Leo Hayes High School just to see the building, one more time, where he will be attending school tomorrow.
