Pip has been out of school for a little over a month now.
We're working through the "deschooling process" currently.
Out of the blue a week or two ago Pip started reciting the alphabet. It's currently his favorite thing to do during diaper changes.
His behavior is improving. We went to the grocery store and he walked alongside the cart for most of the trip, only needed to be in the cart towards the end when he got too tired to behave any longer. Previously, if his feet were on the floor he'd get his hand free from ours and take off running.
He is starting to show an interest in books again. He went through a period at the end of 2018 where he didn't even want to hear us reading aloud to him.
The medical based therapists are hesitant to say his behavior has/has not improved there, partially because they recently increased the difficulty of some of his goals/tasks and so while they are still seeing the negative behaviors at times they don't know how much is a result of the increased difficulty.
Overall, pulling him out of school has been the right decision.
Not planning on doing an online program currently.
I have Math U See primer level with the manipulatives so we'll do lessons from there. Then we'll do a bunch of reading aloud from library books. The rest of the work time I plan to work on life skills - potty training and dressing independently - among other household tasks. I plan to have lots of play time built in to his day too. And therapy, can't forget that.
