IEP page is up & morning meltdown update

Check out the new IEP resource page and let me know what you think. I have more to add but it's a start...

Also, remember when I posted about our morning meltdown situation with Bitty? We thought we had tried everything but we finally hit on something that works - pop-tarts. For whatever reason, he just calms right down with a pop-tart and lets me get him dressed, shoes on, even coat on, without so much as a fuss, so this week has been better. That's the good news. The bad news is we're out of pop-tarts. All three boys love them so a box of pop-tarts doesn't last long around here. We're going to have to get a box specifically for mornings and HIDE it. :)

I know how you feel. My boys love pop tarts as well and I go through several family style boxes a week.

Happy Friday!

Wonderful on the IEP pages, IEPs are a source of confusion and frustration for many parents

We are having such a hard time implementing our IEP from out of state here in CA. I have a call in to an advocacy group...and we have a really well written IEP from HI. When I read this post it made me think that you may want to pass along to other parents who may have to move out of state that the IEP be written extremely well and extremely specifically before they move out of state. What helps now is that Hawaii detailed to the # of minutes our son should have each therapy each month, HOW he should be integrated with non disabled peers and FREQUENCY. We added goals that were also personal to our family. So now...our school district is finding themselves in a pickle because according to IDEA I must have an IEP with like goals when transferred to the new state. So, all of this to say that before any one has to move, (or even if they are not moving) they should make sure the IEP is written with specific frequency and specific ways to meet each goal.
