IEP preparation

Jayden turns three this month so we have been preparing for his first IEP meeting scheduled feb 10th. I have letters from all his therapists, his most recent progress report from his current preschool and some helpful handouts from the Pittsburg partnership regarding food security.

We are very concerned about food security, as I think all Pws parents are. Much of our preparation has been setting our food rules. We have tried to make things as black and white as possible.

Our second biggest concern is Jayden's speech. Our therapist has suggested he receives speech therapy 4 to 5 times a week for a minimum of 45 minutes a day. These are the recommendations for treating apraxia. It will be interesting to see what the school offers. It would be nice for him to receive all his speech during the school day so we could have fewer appointments in the afternoon.

Our school visit is tomorrow and we have asked to be given copies of all the evaluations. Then we will go to meet our advocate and decide if we need/want someone by our side during the IEP meeting.
