Jacob and Elijah Shaddox are brothers. They live with their mom, Mary, who is the writer of this blog. Jacob is 19 and is now four inches taller than his mom! He also has ADHD and gorgeous red hair. He is a freshman at a technical college studying computer maintenance. Elijah is 15! He is in 9th grade and he is not in ROTC at his high school. He also had red hair, but it is lighter and not as thick as his brother's hair. He is hearing impaired(auditory neuropathy) and wears two cochlear implants. He also has tourette syndrome, ADHD, OCD and anxiety! Mary just started her 25th year as a teacher of the deaf. She is also in her last semester of graduate school to be a diagnostician! She will graduate in December of 2015!

Another Good Week!

Overall, Elijah had another good week at school. Monday was an ALL Green day!! Tuesday through Thursday was a little rough. No aggression, at least, but he did spit, which is a tic, but one he needs to learn to not direct at people and he said ONE bad word, but it was the BIG bad word. He also refused to work yesterday in several classes. We talked last night and he had five out of six greens today on his form and only one YELLOW, with NO screaming/yelling. He earned 175 tickets for today! He was a very happy camper.

His behavior at home has been much better too. I still have to be SO consistent. I can't even bend a little and that can be hard.

We got back to the audiologist on Monday morning and then both boys got to the pulmanologist in the afternoon. It will be a bit of a long day, but I would rather get it all done in one day. The pulmanologist can be a 2-3 hour visit sometimes! UGH! Well worth it to keep the boys healthy, but it can be a long wait. I made the appointment at 1:30 so we would hopefully get done by 4:30.
