2012 Update: A quick update on Michael.  He's 12 years old and just finished 7th grade.  This year he played violin again in the orchestra, had a small part in the musical "Willy Wonka", took Italian and ended up with an 88 grade point average.  It was a hard year for school work.  Changing classes every period & having around 7 different teachers was an adjustment.  The last month of school, we got rid of his 1:1 aide.  Basically, she wasn't doing much anyway- but annoying Michael.  He is for sure independent and wants to be treated like everyone else.  I guess the biggest problems this year have been socialization and behaviors in unsupervised situations. 

Michael loves to swim, ride his bike, surf the internet and do things most pre-teens enjoy.  Thanks for reading our blog!!!!
