Thanks Ken, actually you do have some interesting points despite the

varietions in our systems. It is nice to have Debbie B. handy with

all of her expertiese both as mom and student support supervisor.

I'm intriqued to note that your son has an apparent skill in math

and numbers - our does too - even though it is early in the

school career - it is apparent that he has some talent and interest

in math. Another friend of mine who has two nephews with RSS noted

that both boys were exceptional mathmaticians and when they grew up

they both went into professions where math is integral. I wonder if

there is any connection - you know interms of brain development.

The genetisists made a special point of saying if none of his issues

are interfering with his learning to not make a big deal out of it.

But when a teacher makes a big deal out of things she notes are

different - it can be really hard to ignore. Any way thanks for the

input - it was very helpful.
