Just wanted to let you know that we had Parent-Teacher conferences yesterday, and Nathan's teacher was happy to report that for the past few weeks, since he started with Ann, he has completely turned around! His self confidence has improved, he is no longer making excuses to avoid doing his work, he is even working on catching up on completing all the work he didn't want to do in the past! He is finally willing to write. He is also letting her know what distracts him, and asking for help to remove distractions. He has realized that when his friends are noisy, he can't concentrate, so he now has an agreement with his teacher that whenever he needs it he can sit at her table where there are less distractions.
Thank you so much for everything! If someone would have told me that I would here all of this from Nathan's teacher, I wouldn't have believed it. Before, every time we talked it was about figuring out new ways to help him, but now it was nothing but compliments!!
