I have been painstakingly tracking each and every one of Peas' spontaneous new words on this blog...I am still going to try, but I know that with each passing day it gets more and more difficult and I will miss some. Not a bad problem to have, I know.
I am currently working on a parent information binder for our upcoming initial IEP meeting on February 22. This is basically some personal information presented to the district team at the meeting so they can get to know Peas as a little boy, not "the new cochlear implant kid." His strengths, weaknesses, history, the works. To say that I am a nervous wreck about the meeting would be an understatement. I don't want to be blindsided so I am trying to be as prepared as possible. Hopefully his therapist will still want to work with us after the constant questions I have been posing to her lately...
I am deep into preschool research mode. I have no clue who reads this blog so I will have to remain at least partially secretive about our final plans- but they may include a "regular" preschool setting come September. (With a March birthday, it would be difficult to find a program that would admit my boys and quite honestly we don't have the money right now. Why are preschools so expensive, anyhow? I will have to save that for another post.)
I am visiting a few local programs this Friday and am looking forward to seeing what is out there.
For those of you who are done with Birth to Three, what kind of classroom/preschool are your kids enrolled in? What level of services are you getting from the district? Any other thoughts?
