Okay, So THAT Happened...

...As feared. I called the BOE this morning regarding Handsome Man's assessment. Their answer was that since he scored well on the tests (i.e. he is smart--but we knew that) they are NOT going to move forward and provide us with an IEP (Individual Education Plan). I have been on the phone all morning and have had a good cleansing cry.... and I think I am now ready to FIGHT. I spoke to HM's psychologist and she basically said that not getting an IEP was bullshit AND illegal, re: Federal and State Mandates. I have some homework to do this week. *Sigh*

CRAP!!!!!!

Ugh -- I am so sorry! Keep fighting that good fight -- I am rooting for you. Handsome Man deserves this kind of help.

I'm so sorry. One of my friends is currently waging a battle with her local school board about her son's speech delay. They do not make it easy...hang in there!

Hey darling. It's a tough process, but this is only the beginning. I can tell you as a teacher that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. You know what your son needs, and special ed is full of red tape so keep pushing!!!

Also- I've named you for an award. How could I leave you out? LOL

{{hugs}}

Dude. Sorry, I haven't checked in in a while. I had no idea you guys were going through this. Sounds very similar to our situation...kinda. Please feel free to email me or something if you need to talk/vent. (HUGS)
