Has anyone had to do one at this age? I just met with his case worker today and she warned me that this is the next step, as he gets turned over to the school district on his 3rd bday.
He is ASD, but his needs are communication and socialization, he is normal to above average with most of his cognitive and physical abilities. His case worker indicated that she thought a particular preschool program would be the best fit for him because that's exactly where their concentration is (communicaiton and socialization), but that there's no guarantee we'll get recommended for the program, or for any preschool program at all. One of my big concerns is the transition between daily ABA and preschool - it sounds like they often go cold turkey, which he does not deal well with.
What is reasonable to ask for? What is not? What should we expect at this age? I just don't even know.
I just really feel the need to have my ducks in a row now, since I'm 35 weeks pg right now and am not going to have the brain power to stress over this with a NB.
