Write it down

  

When you have child with disabilities there is so much to do that paperwork never seems to get organized. My paperwork is in large messy piles on my desk and I can always find some activity more important than arranging it. However when I fight my natural inclination to ignore paperwork and keep organized records, it has paid off.  For example, when we moved, just before my son entered high school, the school district told us that since he would not be entering the high school they had expected, he would not be able to attend school for the first weeks of Sept. I was able to show that we had informed them of the move several months before it occured and my son was able to start school with his peers.
