My daughter was (finally) diagnosis with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified this summer. Communication/Language was the one area that was fully in the autsim category. Because it's Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified and not High-Functioning Autism (HFA), we are not eligible for services from the Regional Center here in CA. I've had her in ballet classes since May and she's doing okay. She's still having the same issues in class, doing poorly and talking back. I've been really working on husband to get him to not yell at her, and the harmony in our house has been getting better just a tiny bit, but there are the same issues, we're just not trying to get so upset about them. I know her IEP will be coming up in Dec. I've fowarded her diagnosis to her teacher and the school psychologist. Neither have suggested any differences to her education. I feel like they kind of went, yeah, okay, so what with the diagnosis. I'm at a loss on what to suggest to help her in school. Also, the regional center said it's up to the school to provide her with any "help". I don't understand how they can help at home? I want her to get behavior mod classes but have no idea how to get them for her. I also want her to get into the Waldorf school that is part of the public school dist here. There is a huge waiting list. Does anybody know if I can request that on her IEP and make it happen? What do I need to actually ask the school to change? I'm at a loss as to what to actually ask for.
