Hi all: My son is in 1st grade and has hyperlexia with high functioning autism, and has been on IFSP/IEP since he was a toddler. Although he has a significant language delay, he is and always has been academically on target or ahead of target, except for maybe in writing. In the past, we were always told that he didn't qualify for ESY because that is for kids who are academically behind. We challenged them on that this year at his IEP meeting (they were ready to check the "no ESY" box as usual) and argued that he should get ESY to address his behavioral and speech issues. We have an "ESY meeting" scheduled for Monday. Anyone have any advice on how to convince the school that he should get services over the summer???
