We are almost done. With the semester, I mean. The Dog Walker has been working so hard to get good grades and finish out well. He has 100% in his Multicultural Education class and that is his final score!
He has five classes this time and he will likely get an A grade in 4 of them with a B in math. And that is assuming he does well on his math final. Math has never been his best class. It's always been a struggle. I thought that was something unique to his personality until one day when he was writing a report.
He looked up some information on a famous Autistic person, Temple Grandin. She has several degrees from universities and she also is a professor in Colorado. The Dog Walker admires her very much and with good reason. She is a shining beacon of success for these kids with similar problems.
Anyway, she said that when she took Algebra, she was forced to hire a tutor or she would never have finished college. She never had to take Math 1050 to graduate. Her thoughts are that people with Autism have a difficult time understanding concepts that are not concrete. That's certainly true with the Dog Walker.
He has to take Math 1050 for his education major. He is just finishing 990. Then in summer semester he has to take 1010 and then for fall it will be 1050.
And then he will graduate.
That is the plan.
But first he has to pass 990.
I'll keep you posted.
