"phrasing" of reports, evaluations & IEPs, etc. I just signed off on kt's IEP & transition plan for next year. The IEP was okay - the transition plan was insulting to me as a parent. The words "student & teacher agreed, however mom strongly disagrees" with this statement or that in the report. I'd also like to know how "kt needs curb to curb busing due to her high vulnerability" & "kt needs to learn to utilize public transportation" jibe. (by the way, "mom strongly disagreed" to the public transportation idea while teacher & kt agreed.) Many parents, even parents of PCs, don't start the public transportation lessons, or many don't even allow their children on public transportation due to some of the dangers. "kt needs to continue to utilize PCAs because of her vulnerability in the community" & "kt needs to be out in the community on her own to develop confidence & friends of her own age" ("kt & teacher agree, mom strongly disagrees"). kt, while showing tremendous growth & maturity, is in no way ready to be out on her own. psychiatrist, therapist, in home therapist & CADI manager (she's in charge of risk management plan) all agree on that point. I wonder if kt & I sat down together & completed this survey if things would have been different. Hmmmmm..... I find this transition piece to be very contradictory & somewhat insulting to me as the parent. School deals with kt 6 out of 24 hours in a day. The kt at school isn't the kt at home or in the community. Transition planning, by law, is to start at 14 years of age in our SD. SD needs to get a clue. I'll be dealing with this at the start of ths coming school year.
