Performance improvement plan...

So, I am in the middle of review season right now. Meaning that everyone gets their yearly performance review in May. Our process starts in Feb and last until delivery in late april.

Well, when someone is not performing as well as they should and could be, they might possibly go on a performance improvement plan. They need to do specific things in order to begin heading in the right direction. And they better show significant improvement, quickly.

Well, I've (and his teacher) decided that Max is on a performance improvement plan. He has gotten notes recently from his teacher letting us know that his self control is all but non existent. So now he gets a sheet everyday that rates his morning and his afternoon. He get a check, check plus, or check minus. And depending on what he gets, he may (or may not) come home and put a sticker on his chart to earn a privilege. Well, three days in and we've got 1 sticker on the chart so far.

I'm telling you, if one of my children drives me crazy, it will be this one.

Have we talked about ADHD? I feel like we have.

Austin was having major self control issues. For awhile we questioned if that coupled with some other issues were a part of something seizure related. That was ruled out. He'd been evaluated for ADD/ADHD and they kept saying no. Finally one of our neurologists said let's just TRY the medications. It took a few tries to get everything right, but he is a much different child now. He can control himself, his behaviors and his emotions in the classroom now.

It's something to think about. The big question is, can he willingly control his behavior? Is he doing it for attention? Because he's bored? If you answered no, look into ADHD. And if you have any questions, just ask.
