Nursery School Dropout
We've been having such a hard time getting Recker acclimated to his Nursery class at church. Today i new it was going to be rough, because the second we came around that corner and he saw the door he started crying. He wasn't tired, because he had just had a 3 hour nap, he wasn't hungry because he had just eaten. He just has such severe separation anxiety in sometimes and it worries me for starting school in the fall. Well we walked in, usually i stay in with him as long as i can, but this time i decided to just bring him in and drop him off with his Nursery leaders (who are super sweet and understanding). He was sobbing and clinging to me, but i snuck out when he wasn't looking (maybe my first problem, but either way he would have reacted the same). I sat down in Relief Society and before we even started they had taken him out of Nursery and brought him to me. They said he was throwing up over and over again. I wasn't surprised. He does that at home when we put him to bed before he WANTS to. He cries so hard and throws up repeatedly. I completely understand why they can't let him stay in there, they are not paid to be nursery leaders, they have no experience working with special needs and its just not their responsibility to be cleaning up vomit. We are just lost at what to do at this point. We are hoping that we can get a BCBA since we have now been qualified for ALTCS/AHCCCS and maybe they can help.
