Reducing Therapy Hours

We've begun the process of transferring Alex from half-time school, half-time therapy back to full-time school.  

I'm having a bit of mixed feelings about it.  On the one hand, he's achieved all of his behaviour goals (feeding the cat, more independent) except toileting, which the therapists can't help us with because he won't go while they're there.  On the other hand, it means we go back to being mostly on our own.  The school will help and the behavioural specialist will still be working with us on toileting, but it's not the same.

He's handling the transition well, so far.  He's been used to leaving school at lunch time, so we're gradually lengthening the school day and shortening the therapy day.  By this time next month, he'll be back at school full time.
