The advocate just left. I guess she must have not really read Wee's file before...she said this is the most severely impaired kiddo she's worked with. I always wonder why people say that? Is that supposed to make me feel better about the situation? She drafted a letter listing all the accommodations that have been recommended recently. Two pages worth. I will rewrite it and send it to school. We have an IEP meeting on Wednesday to review how the SpEd room placement is going. She will be there. The school is conducting MAP testing for the next 2 weeks. All the SpEd kids will be in the resource room, and the SpEd teacher will be conducting MAP testing for the kids who need pullout. So basically, Wee's going to have a 2-week-long recess since he only goes to school til 1. The SpEd teacher will be "around", but the kids will just be watching movies and hanging out in the resource room with paras.... Spring break was last week, SpEd was gone Thur and Fri the week before...another month of school out the window, partly in the name of no child left behind. Hahaha. I am thankful the advocate is stepping up. Even tho things have been relatively quiet on the difficult child front, I'm absolutely exhausted with this situation...he's 8 years old and he may as well be 3 or 4 in terms of many of his needs... Oh, and advocate wants me to literally memorize the Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) evaluation by Wednesday. 22 pages that basically say my kid is mentally impaired with, by some miracle, language skills. I know what it says. I'm not sure I really want to be able to recite yet another set of statistics about him. Yay. Sorry. Guess I'm just rambling.
