So, I'm back. We're settled in our new home, and GRG is actually doing pretty well in school. I'm actually really surprised. I fought really hard to get him into the program he's in before school started, which was hard because CO and MI don't use the same IEP labels (for example, CO uses the designation SIED, where MI uses EI). Anyway, I got him into a level 4 program without having to have him go though the IEP evaluation 1st. So my screw up. He did need the evaluation, he needed a new IEP. So I consented to have them do the entire evaluation, cognitive tests, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) tests, PT/Occupational Therapist (OT)/Speech evaluations. Anyway, there was a bunch of tests they did. So, there was a discussion about if they should do the IQ tests or not, and I said "yes, he's so smart, why wouldn't we want a baseline." Well, the IQ test came back really bad. His WISC IV full scale score was only 77 which the person told me was borderline MR. His processing score was only 62. They wrote into the IEP *interpret with caution* because they do not believe he is MR. His WAT-III test scores were more on par with his abilities, but as you can imagine with a deficit in processing speed, he did quite poorly in fluid reasoning areas. Have I totally boned my son, now he has this test out there that basically makes him look MR and if we were to move again, how would this possibly help him. The professionals we're working with now seem unfazed by the scores, but I'm worried about the future. So they left him as EI, he fit many of the criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), but he fit more criteria for EI. There was talk about him moving to a self contained program (not in a general ed building), but they decided to give him until after Christmas and see if he continues to do well.
