I don't know why but the School Assessment letter

    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    just came for N... and they said yes! But it still made my heart rise up in my throat. That feeling of UGH... so I have both K and N going through this at the same time!!! Yikes...

    I am happy and sad at the moment. The school has basically stepped up I think, they were very concerned when I had told them K was never referred prior to me pushing! They have that "Child Find" and even if K was in Private school they were supossed to notify the state that they had a special needs child and no-one ever did. They also did not inform the public school that she was coming this year... which they should have.

    Here we go... I wonder how N's Montessori will feel about the assessment taking place and them coming into her school?
    N is doing pretty well, but we went to a back to school night last week and you could see the build up in both girls... N started spinning in the class, hanging on my leg, had to be picked up, speech regressed, pulling on my curls non-stop and burying her head in my hair. Over stimulated, K looked like a deer in the headlights... wandering around.

    I've heard good things about Montessori. with-the assessment and the "hands-on" approach they have, she should be in good hands.

    I LOVE your quote from Mitch Hedberg!!!!

    Good news!

    It's always refreshing to me to hear when a school district does the right thing.

    I think we all secretly hope that we are horribly mistaken about our kids, totoro. This letter underscores that your concerns are in fact valid. {{{Hugs}}} Accept that your mommy heart will hurt at this, but I know you'll bounce back to advocate for your girls.
