Day 54-double down

He has now beat his record for being at home times 2.  He is going to respite camp again, July 24-27 and it is such a welcome  break for him and us!

We are so proud of all the work he puts into his therapy every day.  He has been working to identify his triggers to anger and practicing how to self calm.

We are getting ready for the school transition in 2 weeks.  This will be a huge challenge for our little man.  He will face his peers again for the first time in 3 months.  He will also face teacher directives and many daily task demands.  All of these things are intense triggers to anger and suicidal threats.  Now that he has some confidence at home we are hoping it will transfer over to school.

He and his siblings are still struggling to form trust but only time and consistently will help that.

It has been a beautiful, exhausting, and extremely rewarding summer!
