Dear Noah......Friday you were in the YELLOW zone again......


apparently during math class you suddenly blurted out a really loud noise......you do that a lot here at home and I am used to it. I guess it scared everyone in the class. I know you cannot help it and do try hard to remember to only do it in specific places...but sometimes your sounds slip out.

I think I have blogged about this before....not feeling they should make you move your TAG from green zone to yellow....as if you were making a disturbance on purpose. You told me you did not make the noise on purpose and I am sure you did not. This has happened at school before though where you have made sounds and they make you move your tag.

I can understand they are trying to teach you to be aware of yourself...your body...your actions and sounds..and control them during public times and places. BUT being somewhat punished for actions you cannot control I think is wrong.

BUT it does not seem to bother you.......and the yellow tag did not really bother me then.

I love you.....we have a Halloween party combined with a birthday party for your grandma and grandpa L here tomorrow. You are very excited!

Evan does this too. When he is really stressed out after a day at school he will say to me in the car "mom, take out your hearing aides, I need to make some noise" and boy, does he ever. I appreciate the warnings now. I think it must be a type of stim. Hope the party was a fun one! We went to a Halloween party last night...Evan did so well with a large group of people...and I forgot to give him his meds before we went. I was just amazed at how awesome he was.

Melinda, Noah always looks so happy in all the pictures you post, so you must know you are raising a very happy and well loved boy, right? I hope so, because his smile speaks louder than any noise Noah could ever make.
