My easy child just started all day Kindergarten. He has an IEP for speech articulation that he got just before he started pre-K last year. He went to our home elem. school for speech all last school year. This year we are in the same district but a different elem. school. They met with him a few days into this school year to listen to his speech. They told me he has come along way and basically has it all down and can be understood. They said he should practice his "L blends" but he pretty much has those down too with reminders. They want me to sign a consent to re-evaluate him in order to release him from services. I agree that it appears he no longer needs help with articulation. I am concerned though about a possible Auditory Processing Disorders (APD). He comments to me a lot that so-and-so talks good or so-and-so has a good voice. Thru questioning him about this what I understand he is saying is that certain people he can "hear" and understand, and others he cannot. I am wondering if certain tones/pitches he can hear better than others. I am not sure if there is anything to this or not. But I don't want to drop services and then not be able to get them again if needed. I was thinking he would have an IEP for 3 years before they re-evaluate or try to discontinue it. Any suggestions? I asked and the school district does not have an audiologist - but I see there is a job posting for one - so they are trying to get one.
