I had an IEP meeting today, and there were some people there that are higher than from local school site. My son's case manager, one of my new heroes, got the Behavorist Progam Manager to come to the meeting, plus the Program Specialist for his school. The Behavorist looked at his evaluation done in June of 2008 and pointed out several things that should have been looked into further. She will be doing that. Finally. I feel like someone hears me. The following assessments will be done ADOS - Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, they will do a deeper speech assessment more on the pragmatics of speech. I am trying not to be resentful of the school that it took this long. Or of myself for not being better informed, or keeping better records when he was little. I wasn't always the mother I am today. I have just figured ALL of his stuff that makes him him, was due to his environment. I have as of the last few years suspected there was something in the spectrum, but I wasn't sure if I was just trying to cut myself a break. Anyways, I should know something in a month or so. Just needed to share.
