Charter School

Today my son had his social group with the psychologist and the other autistic children. The parents (besides myself) meet in the lobby and share things, offering support. I am trying to be in the lobby but really watching my two youngest children in another room. So I go back and forth and try to keep up.
Today the psychologist asked us to consider starting a charter school for autistic children, and dropped a flyer in our laps. She said all of us have pulled our kids out of public school (as I just did, starting them at another charter next fall) and if we don’t, we just fight with the schools until graduation.
Another parent, who happens to work in education, has a contact at Lionsgate, a school that we would model after.
I want to do this.
I don’t know how I can help. I have little children and I work full time. I have no family to fall back on. I don’t know if I can commit the time.
But I want it so badly.

  1. I so badly want more options — better options, more manageable options — for you. And for my other friends with an autistic daughter. And for all the parents I don’t know.
