Anxiety levels rising again.

We have our follow up IEP meeting on Friday.  Why a follow up?  Because the team couldn’t get on the same page at our last meeting in June!  Ugh. 

We are supposed to get the results of the assistive technology evaluation…well, we should have them today, right?  We’ll see, Duhdee reminded the teacher today.  We are supposed to set goals and discuss classroom placement.  On Friday.  He starts school on Monday, I’m so glad we have time to prepare him for this.  His teacher seems to be working on the assumption that we’ll be back in her classroom this fall but at the last meeting that was not what they were saying.  So, it’s anybody’s guess really what will happen there.

We’ve already been informed that his OT, PT and ST are all changing.  The new providers and the old providers are all supposed to be at the meeting.  Plus the teacher and the school psychologist and us and our advocate and…MONKEY.  No childcare available.  So.  Should be a blast.

We have a meeting with our advocate on Thursday evening so we can make a plan.  That’s just about the only thing keeping me from totally panicking.  It really shouldn’t feel like this.

    Don’t you just love those last minute IEP’s. My oldest son ( 5, FX) was moved from the Pre K program to the Autistic class this year, and his speech therapist has changed. My middle son (3, FX ) just started the Pre – K program. My anxiety was off the charts on the first day of school, sending off two of my babies.

    Our IEP experience so far has just been uniformly unorganized and stressfull. Our meeting is now set for Sept. 19, two full weeks AFTER Monkey starts school. I’m so pleased, as you can imagine 🙂
