Hey, I responded to your otehr post, too
Jimmy absolutely loves his preschool. His is really small, though, only 6 or 7 kids in the whole program. I have a had a good realtionship with every one involved on his team, andhis teacher is wonderful.
My advice, go in well prepared. Have independant evals done, and be present for all school evals, at least until you can trust them, yk? Have your ped, current therapists, etc write out their recommendations for therapy and interventions. Remember, IEP means INDIVIDUALIZED education plan, it must be tailored to your CHILD'S needs, not those of the school. Their program has to fit him, not the other way around. Volunteer in the classroom and buddy up to the teacher, therapists at school, if you need to. Also, you don't have to sign anything at the IEP meetings you don't want to, you can take it home and think about it.
