Special Ed. Preschool - Page 2

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
*************************UPDATE*******************
We decided to take ds out of the spec. ed. preschool. It just did not seem to be meeting his needs. After three weeks ds was still not comfortable w/me leaving, even for a minute (perhaps he knew something before me). The class was short staffed for the amount of special needs kids they had. And it just did not seem to be the type of environment that would help his speech. We are looking into speech therapy options.

I am wondering if anyone is familiar w/the type of speech pattern ds is displaying, i.e. where he can easily state his needs, answer simple questions, demonstrate understanding & knowledge, yet not be able to answer/understand less concrete concepts, such as "What is your favorite toy?" "What do you want to do tomorrow?" etc. (Please see my prior post, a few posts back, for further description of his speech & behavior.) I am also wondering if speech tx. is really necessary for a newly 3 year-old in this situation, or if he will catch up on his own w/our assistance. He appears to be improving by the day.

By the way, thank you for all the book suggestions. I have reserved each one from my library and look forward to reading them.

great place for speech and language disorders info to get started online, just a nice dad's website that has all the acronyms you could ever use, a funny top ten page about IEPs too that made me wet my pants --
Thought you may like it,
