Noah got this giant pumpkin cookie from Whole Foods on Saturday. He only took a few bites and was done. he is not so much into sweets. But, he loved just picking out the cookie and bringing it home. :)
Lets just say I was not happy with his IEP last Friday. There were no shows and I was not notified of any of them not coming but one (OT called me to let me know and her reports were there). The no shows? Special Ed, Reg. Ed, PT and no assessments were done for Behavioral and Assistive Technology like I asked. Speech- 6 times a semester. The PE coach was there and she is sweet and wonderful a friend of my sister and the adaptive PE coach was there and she is wonderful and sweet. The academic goals were a joke for a 9 year old! Here is one- will pick a favorite book out of 3 books 4 out of 5 times by the end of the year. WHAT?! Serious? Here we go again with low expectations of my boy. Not having it! I was sick all weekend about it all. Felt like just pulling him out and being done with it.
When I saw the teacher this morning I let her know how unhappy I was and with what.
When I picked Noah up this after noon the speech therapist was waiting for me. She was sorry for the mix up and for me being upset and said, she sees Noah 2 times a week and just wrote 6 times a semester for what ever blah reason. And that she would change it on the IEP reports if I wanted and I said, yes, I wanted. I was grateful she came to talk to me! answered prayers I tell ya! Then the aide came out with Noah and said, they finally took Noah to reg ed 2nd grade today, wow, finally. Noah did great too. Now for the teacher to sit down with me and make appropriate goals and I will be happy.
Oh, I was told that the JOKE of a school district he last went to will not get back to this school district about sending his records and the records person lives next door to his current OT. wow. Then some one got a hold of some one and was told they only have one IEP from 2005 when we first moved here to Texas and he was 3. lol I called today and asked for the records and was told to call the last school of attendance and I did and the woman never called me back. Like I need to deal with this.
Anyway, happy things are looking up and having faith in it all and in my self to know what to do for my sweet boy. Joel wishes for me to pull him and home school and I am feeling that way too but I want to wait and give schools a try in Ohio. If we have the same kind of junk happening then we will go back to homeschooling. In the mean time, I will continue with prayers and faith that it will all work out. I know there are good schools and teachers out there some where and hopefully waiting for us to get there soon!
Happy Tuesday my friends!!!
