Virtual School

Jerah waiting for school to start.

Jerah and one other child are in the virtual classroom. Jerah was crying because his favorite teacher aid had not signed in yet. The other child was on the floor, crying with a blanket over his head.

Once Jerah’s favorite aid logged on, he was happy. He really likes the Microsoft Meetings part of Virtual School.

Some days he does not want to go to in person school. We have a dry erase board schedule so he knows what’s coming each day. One day he was looking at the schedule and at the bottom I had written “School tomorrow.” Jerah pointed at the board and said, “No school tomorrow.” I replied, “Yes, there IS school tomorrow.” Jerah glared at me, pointed at the board and firmly stated, “*I* said NO SCHOOL TOMORROW!” I sort of laughed and said, “Yes, buddy. There IS school tomorrow.” He contemplated this briefly, walked over, erased where I wrote “School tomorrow,” and shouted, “THERE! *NO* SCHOOL TOMORROW!” 🤣 I had to bribe him with a trip to Dominoes. In the world of autism we don’t call it bribing, we call it a positive reinforcer.

Another cute Just Jerah story involves him having a pain in his foot. He jumps up and down constantly. He can jump really high. He gets ribbons for jumping in the Special Olympics every year. Jerah yelled “OUCH!!!” I come running from the other room, “What happened, buddy!?” Jerah pointed at his heel and whimpered, “Foot elbow hurts!” His foot elbow! 😍😅

Anyhow, I guess I will get back to watching Virtual School. Jerah’s reading ability is progressing nicely. I am excited about that. We have been doing really well at home together since he has been home from Hawthorn Center. We have only had a couple of aggressive outbursts and one evening where we had to have the crisis team come out and intervene. This is an amazing improvement over how we were a year ago! Praise God!

Okay… Autism Class Virtual School is the best TV show ever! I love watching! It’s my favorite! 😍😂

I am Mom to Jerah (a super cool 14 year old diagnosed with autism), a social worker on the side, a recovered drug addict established 4/15/2014, and a highly creative person who needed another artistic outlet, so welcome to our blog.
