Got a call from the place that does the screening yesterday. I have a meeting with them on the 17th to go over paperwork, then there's a meeting at the school on the 25th, which I believe is the IEP meeting. They wanted to do it sooner but it was same day we go to neuropsychologist. I never did hear back from the advocate I talked to before Thanksgiving and I'm not even sure I can find her number again. They've started screening kiddo a little bit here and there, but as standardized tests are this week she didn't want to put too much on kiddo all at once. They're not going to check for AS or NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD) unless they have a red flag during the screening that says they need to look further. Since we finally got a neuropsychologist appointment I'm not overly concerned about that right now. All lines of communication are open between SpEd Svcs, SD, kiddo's therapist and case worker, teacher, school counselor, and principal. Right now it looks like the only ones NOT on board are kiddo's psychiatrist and pediatrician, but I don't think they're invited to the meeting anyway. I explained to the woman from SpEd why I didn't put much stock in anything psychiatrist put in writing as a diagnosis, that I would have genetic testing results in March and about the upcoming neuropsychologist appointment, and that I would put more stock in those two and SpEd than I would what psychiatrist has to say on the matter since he didn't even think kiddo needed to be tested for anything. Right now (excluding the docs) it sounds and feels like everyone is pretty much on board with getting kiddo a good IEP. When I said "You've seen how kiddo can be" the response from SpEd indicated to me that she has certainly seen the difficulties, and I let her know I've seen an anxiety upswing and she seemed to understand what that means in kids like ours. No skepticism whatsoever, just a "I know how it goes" kind of thing. I'm not seeing/sensing anything I would consider a red flag that kiddo won't get an IEP. Any advice on specific questions or concerns I should have? Report cards go home today, too.
