Therapy for Jer

So the long and short of it is Jer will NOT be receiving applied behavior therapy at home, for now. The regional center saw that Jeremy is not in need (which I guess is a good thing) but that they want to send me to a 1 day parent training course. I however do NOT agree with this as his only option. I should have been sent to this class a long time ago, honestly speaking.
These people upset me. They don't really care, even though they say they do. At the end of the day it's all about money. I'm well aware that there are kids in my area who need these services more than Jer and maybe they aren't also going to school like Jeremy is but at the same time, someone needs to figure out how to get these services to EVERYONE. 
I just don't like how the whole system works. But for now I need to do what I need to do. 
Jeremy is off for now. He returns to school for a summer session starting June 10. The session ends July 18 and then he will be off until mid August I think. 
At this point, school is his only form of therapy. He needs more! 
So frustrated with this whole thing!

The good points are that Jeremy is getting more and more verbal. He (for now) has stopped playing with his feces, his tantrums are less intense and are shorter and he has for the most part stopped biting people. I'm hoping it's not just a phase but that the school is really helping in correcting these behaviors. 

The two things he could use behavior therapy for is running off and potty training but quite honestly I'm feeling that most of that is a 3 year old thing. And the fact that he's so stubborn!  

That's all the news I have for now. 

Hope everyone is having a great week =)
