The family coordinator came over last week to go over Evan's report. She told me since he's so close to being 3 years old, instead of starting him in their program - which is called "Developmental Watch" They are going to go ahead and have the "transition meeting" and get Evan started in the School District, that way he won't have to get used to one speech pathologist and then have to switch him over and get him all confused. I am awaiting a call from her this week about it all. Evan will be having a Speech Pathologist - maybe 2 coming out to the house - once a week. He will also have a Early Childhood Educator coming out, either once or twice a month, I forget what she said...
On his report they also suggested a preschool. So, we'll be looking into that too.
What is next for everyone else & their child(ren)?
For Cody at the moment he is in kindergarten. Regular classroom setting.
When we had his IEP meeting in May, they said he was going to be seeing the intervention specialist for 1 hour (out of 2.5 hours in school for PM kindergarten) in HER room but when we had open house, we found out the IS will be in there with him in the classroom all afternoon. And also he sees the OT and ST for one hour a week each and THEY will also conduct their stuff with Cody in the classroom during free play time. They don't pull him out of the class for anything now, as they want everything to be as "normal" as possible for him. I do too and am thrilled with the new way this setup is going.
I had to go into the school Friday for something anyways so I went when it was time for Cody to go to school and I talked to his teacher. She said he is doing wonderfully. And his potty training in school is going fantastic. I had sent a package of pullups to school "just in case" and there is a change of underwear and pants and socks for him. She said they haven't even had to use the pullups for him, the package is still sealed. I can't tell you how happy that makes me!
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!
Well we are in special ed 1st grade. Her learning is coming along very nicely, but our biggest problem is comprehension. She completely lacks the necessary verbal skills (expressive and possibly receptive) to appropriately answer questions about the material, so we don't know how much she is actually comprehending vs what she is just memorizing. So that is the next biggest step we are hopeing to accomplish, probably using assistive communication devices.
