It is the weekend for me and the start of April vacation for Monkey…we both sorely need our respective breaks. Even Duhdee is appearing to be a bit worn around the edges. Stress seems to be piling up for everyone in our lives these days.
We did get some good news yesterday. Duhdee asked Monkey’s teacher about the reports for the upcoming IEP meeting and, for once, there are none! Since we are not changing his services or his placement we will just be sitting down to talk adjust his goals. I’ve said before that I am comfortable letting the school take the lead in this area. They work with him daily, they see his strengths and weaknesses and they know where he “should” be in terms of skills. It does seem like this will be an “easy” meeting.
I am going to ask them to add Therapeutic Listening to his IEP. The OT thinks it will benefit him but the district ran out of equipment. We offered to buy our own but they haven’t been very willing to work with us for some reason. I think if we add it to the IEP it will force them to step up. I am still very willing to buy whatever he needs but I need them to give me the information I need to do so. We’ll see.
I’m not sure what we’ll be doing today. We created a list of tasks for ourselves this weekend but Monkey is lobbying for a train ride…
