Happy Nerd Day!
Okay, it's not Nerd Day but it is Pi Day.
π = 3.14159
Today is March 14th. Get it? GET IT?!
And it is also Albert Einstein's birthday. You can't get more serendipitous than that.
And the Backyardigans are singing their love of pie on Nickelodeon right now. (Pie. Pi. Get it? GET IT?!)
Oh, my nerdiness is never ending. ::sigh::
In other fantastically nerdy news, I concluded yesterday that Griffin will have to be re-evaluated for his sensory issues and possibly be screened for autism. Fun, fun.
Yesterday was parent conference day at Griffin's preschool. Granted, his teachers love him and only had glowing things to say. But I could tell by what they were not saying that Griffin is still delayed beyond a point of "normalcy" (starting to really fucking hate that word) and with Griffin starting kindergarten in August he's going to have a lot of difficulty with the rigid time structure and what's expected at him.
Of course, growling at the other students doesn't help either.
So in order to get Griffin the best education possible, he needs a diagnosis before he starts school (and with an IEP if needed). Because the last thing I'm going to do is knowingly send him to school without any help.
Being a parent rocks!
Edited to add: Griffin was diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder and "borderline" autism in the autumn of 2005, he needs re-evaluation before beginning kindergarten so he can have an IEP if needed. You can read more about our sensory adventures here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
And can I just say? Keeping this blog rocks. It's like a medial handbook for my family. Geesh.
