Back when we had Mayson's IEP in April, there were several things the team and I disagreed with. I was PRO preschool again, and they were PRO kindergarten.
One of my main reasons I was for preschool was Mayson's fine motor skills. This sweet girl still cannot draw a line on command, let alone even want to hold a pencil, crayon, marker, glue stick or scissors. We are still trying to get her to use a spoon and fork correctly. I requested that our local AEA re-evaluate her for OT services since they had denied her one on one the last year school. They agreed to do the evaluation which took a few weeks to do. We all met back for her IEP again at the end of May, and their conclusion was that after working several times with her one on one, they did not see any improvement so, they would not give her one on one therapy at school.... ARE YOU FRICKEN KIDDING ME?????? Basically, they are telling me they are giving up on her.... its not worth their time. I am stunned.
We do private OT and I LOVE our private OT but we only get to see her every other week now that Mayson is in school 4 full days. Our state is supposed to provide our children with services at their schools once they turn 3. My girl is only 5 and is already slipping through the system. They are denying her her rights. It doesnt seem fair. She has so much potential and they are already giving up on her.
MAKES ME SICK!!! THIS MAY GET UGLY BUT I WILL KEEP FIGHTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
