First Day of School!

Today was Day 1 of being in class on ADHD medication, so it was like the first day of school all over again

Jonas' teacher and I had a couple of good chats today. Before school we talked about about his meds and how he's reacting to them. His sleep is back on-track but he was a little tired this morning, his appetite is gone so his energy is a little low, and I'm still a little worried that he might be zoning out a bit too much. She's going to monitor him in class and we're working together to impliment other strategies that will help him.

The best part of the day for me was after school. His teacher and I spoke again. She said he did very well today. He did a better job focusing, needed fewer reminders, and had no trouble at recess. His writing was neater today and he got much more detail written into his agenda. He forgot his spelling list but, for the first time EVER, copied it correctly into his agenda. He even stayed mostly on-track during homework time!

He's only been on the meds for week so we're still in the break-in period. One day doesn't foretell the future and I still don't expect miracles but it's been a good day and I'll take it!
