Stephen

My son

Stephen will be 17 this year. I can’t believe that he is that age already. He is going into grade 12 in September.  He has had his struggle with school, especially in reading and social skills.

When he was around 12, he was diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome.  Alot of people don’t understand what Tourette’s is. I myself, don’t know a whole lot about it nor do I understand a lot of it.  Last year I started attending a group for Tourette’s Syndrome: http://www.tourettesyndromeontario.ca/.

When he was first diagnosed, the school had no idea, they didn’t see any signs of it themselves.  Once the school found out they were excellent in getting the help that he needed to succeed in school.  The school board asigned a laptop to him throughout his school years to help with his work.  It has made a big improvement for him.

He is now in highschool. He has been taking tech, specifically woodworking.  He has decided that he wants to get into building homes and possible furniture making.  He is working towards a special start that will go on his diploma for when he goes to college.

Anyone with questions, suggestions or you have a child with Tourette’s I would be more then happy to talk with you.

Pet Peeves

I have a few pet peeves that I would like to share. First off, I hated it when people go out the in doors and in the out doors. Can people not read signs? I also hate it when people take up two parking spots. Why? I have other that I will mention another time. I feel like asking people if they can read when they come out the in door or when they go in the out door and they are stopping others from trying to get thru. It is so rude!
