The meeting went well, I think. They have finally decided, AND put it on the table, that the first step has to be keeping wee difficult child in the building and not escalating him. *** YA THINK???? i've only been saying this for a year and a half now... *** But, I must give them credit, it goes against every thing they've ever been taught, but they are doing it. *** They are not pulling him out of the morning classroom for social skills group (this would have resulted in 6 para/room transitions in 3.75 hours instead of just the 4 he already has) He now has the option of going to to music or not, and if he does not go to music, he will joint he social skills group. *** We tried to get them to tack social skills on to the end of every day, but they did not. We did not push it, we'll bring in the advocate for that. *** They are also concerned about his academics. He can't read a lick, and they are now realizing that an hour of sped instruction a day isn't gonna cut it. *** Snail's pace, or slower, but they are starting to get it. *** Sorry I've been away...I've been making up the time I'm missing from work, so I haven't had any free time lately.
