How do you help your LOs with special needs get ready to go back to school? We are a month and a week away from our start. I'm trying to get G to keep reading over the summer, although its kind of painful to listen to. I have been terrible about keeping up with writing. He hates to write, and I hate to force him. I'm a special education teacher, and I hate making my summer vacation feel like work. We will probably start in the next few weeks having G go to bed a little earlier each night, by maybe five minutes. Right now he's staying up too late for school nights. What ideas do you guys have?
