So, sometimes I hate being in the school district and not the EI program any longer. If you haven't made it to the school system yet, once there are 3 and transition to preschool education and beyond, they can only receive services while school is in session, so no services during breaks, or over the summer, unless they are on extended school years and going to summer school. Fortunately we did not have too much regression over the summer, but we still had some. It's so frustrating that they can't receive services unless they are in school. GRRRR!!!

And the first couple of weeks back to school are usually rough because all of the therapists haven't gotten the IEPs yet and then there's scheduling, and with my dd receiving speech 5x, OT 5x, vision 4x, PT 2x, and O&M 2x, there is a lot of scheduling. She didn't start her services until this week, so there is another week and a half she has missed. *SIGH*

My little girl is not in school yet but I do understand your frustration. My 10 year old son has ADHD with an IEP and is in a ICEP program. I noticed alot of progress made last year was lost during the summer. I am still waiting on redoing the IEP since it has expired. I am hoping to have him transitioned to mainstream classes this year.

That is VERY good to know. As we are already going to have our "transition meeting" to the school district. As when Evan was evaluated he was past 2.5 and that's when they start to transition. I hope it's not a headache, ugh.

I think alot of it depends on your school district. My school district has been pretty good, aside from them thinking she wasn't as high functioning as she is (the evaluated her on one of her off days, and she was the highest functioning in her preschool class and knew everything they were covering, so she didn't participate or pay attention b/c she was bored and of course the evaluator saw that and misconstrued it, and we had a really idiotic school pyschologist) but we got the placement we wanted and they realized how wrong they were, and since then, things have been a breeze. But as they get older and get less and less delayed and more age appropriate, you may have to fight a little harder for services.

My school district is not like this in the least. We did summer sessions(although it was every other week instead of every week). Then when he turned 3 we had some hassle of switching from an IFSP to an IEP and that stalled some speech sessions, but not too bad. They are so willing to work with me and if i say that i think he needs more of this and this they are willing to change his IEP up some to make it possible.

That is great news!!! Most districts are like that for the most part, and my school district is uasually pretty good, so I really can't complain too much. My biggest complaint though is the not receiving services when school is not in session, Fortuantely Alexis qualifies for 12 month school year (meaning she gets summer school and her services) but if she retained her skills during the summer, she wouldn't be able to receive services becuase she wouldn't be in school. You might just want to check and see if Hunter would get services when school is on break because if he doesn't you may want to push for extended school year so he gets the services.
