We have an IEP on Tuesday.
We are going to discuss ESY & placement for next year. I am really torn. I don't know what to do. The ESY is easy, she needs to go to get her therapies and socialize with the children. Placement is another story. I am not sure if I want to keep her in a CDC (classroom for disabled children) with some inclusion or total inclusion with an aide. I have never navigated this road and am so unsure of which way to go. I also don't know if I want to keep her at this school or have them move her. It seems that they just don't know what to do with her. She has such huge splinter skills that they don't know how to foster her abilities while also treating her disabilities. I have been told more than once that they have never had a child like her before that was so smart. I find that hard to believe, but who knows.
Any whoo- I am gearing up for the fight. Please send some prayers and vibes our way as we have our meeting and that I will make the best choice for MM.
On a funny note: MM really LOVES to repeat drug commercials. You didn't realize how many there were or how often they show them until she starts repeating them. She has asked her nana if she "suffers from chronic constipation". She asked me the other day: "Mom, do you suffer from erectile DISTINCTION? (supposed to be dysfunction)" How funny! I answered her "NO" but secretly laughed cause there is some truth to that since bed-dancing is almost non-existent around here!
