I had the opportunity to stay home from school today, but have decided to go in. Maybe I can get a few more kids to make up work. Hope I don't regret it.
Today was supposed to be the Spec. Ed. annual review for my youngest son, but the meeting was postponed. I expressed our concerns to the SE Chairperson and we decided to have Kevin fully tested again to see if the self-contained setting is right for him. We feel that being in such a restrictive, non inclusive environment is not preparing him for the future. The class includes 11 boys of varying disabilities.
Unfortunately, although Kevin normal to high intelligence, he also has the Aspergian's tendency towards anger when overwhelmed. This may keep him in the self contained classroom.
Anyway, both my husband and I were proud of the way I handled the situation and clearly expressed our concerns. Even if the testing changes nothing, we tried.
