Some had further questions about my TMH students. They are in their own
class...the only thing is they have put the TMH and severely handicapped
kids together and some of them have extreme differences in their abilities
thus complicating the possible lesson ideas.

Yeah, I had a problem with the regular teachers comments on "age
appropriate" too. I truly think she meant it to be a suggestion to not
approach them in a way to might make them feel inferior by having lessons
that seemed too childlike. On the other hand, they are childlike. To me
they seem perfectly content to do more elementary work, not only because of
their motor skills, but that IS their mentality.

I have received information on what is expected for each. These things
range from staying on task, following 2 or 3 step instructions, etc. I
guess it's going to be up to me to come up with goals such as cutting on
the line, etc.

In the meantime, it's been quite an experience. They love to come in to
work on their art and are just delighted with completing their projects.

Thanks again for all the help and concern.
