We’re dealing with some pretty challenging stuff right now. I won’t repeat all of it here, but you can check out this diary, where you can see not only the original story, but the responses we have gotten, and my updates in the comments.

In a nutshell, this started while I was working on a project out of town, and our son (who is nearly 16 and has Asperger’s Syndrome) received a 9-day suspension for what the school called “assault”. Then on Friday, we suddenly get this summons for a court date. It’s a huge mess, and I can’t begin to tell you how far behind I’m getting in work I’m supposed to be doing, and the end of the quarter is nearing, so I really do need to find some way to turn my attention back to that. But I thought before doing so, I’d put out a few feelers to see what other resources people might know about.
