So DS's IEP meeting was today. His diagnosis (DBD-not otherwise specified) doesn't allow for him to automatically be classified as physically disabled. He tested above grade level academically, so he has no learning disability, so he's been identified as SIED (significant identifiable emotional disibility). They are going to track his behaviors and see if they improve, but if they don't he will be sent to a new school with a SIED classroom where he will get an individual para and the school has a psychologist and Special Education teacher on staff full time. I am very torn. Most of what we have done was to avoid the SIED label, and I really don't want to have to deal with 2 schools (I won't move daughter from her current school). On the other hand, our school is not a good fit for him...mostly because our school psychologist and Special Education teacher split their time between 2 schools, so they aren't always there, and he doesn't get one on one instruction which is what he needs. It's also an early access school, meaning he is in school with a bunch of 4yos (DS is 6yo & 65lbs, he's about a foot taller than most of the kids in his class). I don't really want him in a classroom with a bunch of other kids just like him, but that might be what has to happen. It's not a done deal. They will track the data and decide after Christmas. One good thing is that they said that if it is decided that he should be moved the district is required to provide transportation to and from his school. They said a bus will pick him up at our door and drop him off. That would be a huge thing for us, since right now husband has to leave work to go pick him up from school because he is in half day kindergarten and thus no transportation home. So, that was my day. I am exhausted. It would be tough to move him, get a whole new staff used to him, but it is almost a relief...knowing that it's at least a group of people who are prepared for the behaviors.
