Progress reports in, IEP season coming up

Good news - this time both Cuddlebug and Bearhug got straight A's! On their last progress report, Cuddlebug got straight A's, while Bearhug had 4 A's and 2 B's (also very good!). I guess competitiveness turned out to be a good thing in this case, b/c when Bearhug saw that Cuddlebug had straight A's he was motivated to put in a little extra effort and it has paid off :).

They are also doing well on their IEP goals, although Cuddlebug continues to struggle with arguing with his teachers (have I mentioned he is never wrong? about anything? at least according to him). He can be quite stubborn (yes, that's an understatement).

In other news, we are embarking on what I have come to think of as "IEP season," otherwise known as spring semester. We'll kick it off with Cuddlebug's IEP meeting next week, followed by Little Bitty's in mid-March, and Bearhug's in April. Well, actually now that I think about it, we did have an update on Bitty's IEP in the fall so actually I think his next update will be in either late May or early August.

Do ya'll think it would be helpful to have a section where I share some of their IEP goals, past and present? I know it helps me sometimes to come up with ideas / suggestions to bring to the meetings when I read other IEP goals online.

Sometimes natural competition spurs us to do better. My sister refused to potty train until I started, then all of a sudden, she was all for it. My mother got us both trained quickly because we were trying to one up each other.
Your boys are gorgeous!

i do think an IEP section would be great. I know when mine were in pub school IEP were a minefield.

Congrats on the grades boys! :)

I think everyone can benefit from sharing IEP info. Please post! :)

I posted some at my blog that might be helpful.
