Well, Cooper got in trouble at school again. He got into a spat with a fourth-grader during their puzzle time.
I had a good talk with his teacher. Part of the frustration is that the majority of the time he is a happy, friendly kid at school. He had some issues getting his work done, but those have to do with concentrating and getting distracted by other things.
But the hitting seems like it is out of nowhere. We can't figure out exactly why he has done it the two times that he has. I thought maybe part of it was his inability to express himself verbally. He was a late talker and went to speech therapy. He used to throw huge fits because he couldn't communicate what he waned.
The teacher said this his verbal skills are above the majority of the class. And the he is smart and thinks outside the box. And he is very apologetic after he commits his act. She thought that part of it may be that he is very curious and is kind of testing what happens.
He will be involved in a type of peer group at school. I hope to be talking to the counselor soon. We are certainly blessed with teachers and school employees that will work with us. That is such a blessing. I can't imagine having to be a parent that doesn't have that, or worse a kid who doesn't have that and doesn't have the support at home.
