It seems like we've had quite a few folks find us recently and I wanted to make sure that you all get the info on doing a parent report. This is a great tool, especially if you are looking at getting IEP evaluations, neuropsychologist/psychiatric/etc. evaluations. Rather than repeating yourself ad nauseum to multiple professionals, you get to document once and for all everything there is to know about your difficult child including what works, what doesn't, what you've tried, and what your hopes are for your kiddo. You are the expert on your kid - this is a really convenient and effective way of sharing information with the professionals involved (sometimes you do have to make sure they actually *read* it, LOL ). You may be shocked at the amount of time it takes to get the first draft done but it really is well worth your time. Updating it on a regular basis is recommended. Also, if you could do a signature before you start posting, it would help tremendously. Signatures help the board membership remember your specifics. The instructions for doing a signature are here. Thanks so much!!
