Vice House Captain - Kind of miraculous!

I just have to share this for a Small Steps Amazing Acheivements post about my little boy (well not so little now he is 10!) But this is the same little boy who started school at age 4 and was told he was naughty, that he didn't listen, that his parents couldn't control him, that he mustn't hit the other children, that he mustn't be rude to the teachers...When we got his diagnosis we realised that it was the anxiety and the problems that school was causing for him that was triggering these behaviours but there was no doubt about it, they were still highly undesirable behaviours.

Fast forward 6 years...3 years of homeschool later...2 diagnoses later...2 schools later and this same child has been voted as Vice House Captain at school by his entire school!

His teachers said of him:
"Everyone is very proud of him. This has really given the other children something to aspire to!"

It is almost miraculous that the little boy who everyone found difficult and didn't want to be like is now the one that other children aspire to be like.

We can't really express just how proud of him we are. We were so proud when he came home with the form to apply for the position, giving his reasons why he should be nominated and filled it all in himself and he didn't even show us what he had written.

It's not like him to put himself up for things like this - so that was an amazing achievement in itself and then to actually be awarded the position of Vice House Captain was just the icing on the cake!
