J told me today that when he "sees" birth date in his head, it's always written in blue. I told him other people see words in color in their head sometimes, too. I was thinking of the book by Daniel Tammet. Then I remember the title is actually Born on a Blue Day. Ironic, eh?
Since I'm here, I guess I should play catch-up. We met with the school psychologist and after testing, she agreed with everything the neurologist had found. He's very bright, but has some trouble processing things, so if he's given multiple tasks, he sometimes loses track of what he's supposed to be do. It also makes math a lot harder for him.
During our IEP meeting, we decided that he doesn't need any extra help with his regular school work, so he has a 504 Plan, which means he'll have accommodations for his 5th grade writing test next year, which is the main reason I was worried in the first place. So we're good there.
Seems like there was something else, but I can't remember it and they're trying to run out the door to go trick-or-treating.

I'm giving away a copy of What About the Boy?: A Father's Pledge to His Disabled Son by Stephen Gallup on my other blog. This is a great story that "chronicles a family's rejection of hopelessness and their pursuit of a normal life."
