First day of Julia’s transition program at Community Connections designed to teach her independent living and employment skills. They have a huge hill to climb.
Anxieties of the morning: The van didn’t come (It showed up at 9:15, a half hour late) and it was less stressful for me to drive her than for her to wait for transportation. She brought drawing materials with her to the program and I encouraged her to use them if she has time. Julia has a brand new rash on one arm (although it might be moving to both arms). I don’t know what it is. There is Sarna in the front of her backpack which works to calm the itch much of the time. She also brought her phone which has proven to be disastrous at times but it wasn’t worth a morning tussle.
