I swear, before this is said & done, I am going to choke out Ms. X (that is MM's teacher). As I posted the other day, she was sick with a UTI. We sent her to school, with a note, stating she would need more frequent bathroom breaks. My mom picked her up Thursday and she was soaked. Not just a little wet, soaked all the way down to her socks in her DAFOs. My mom immediately asked Ms. X if she knew she was wet. Of course, Ms. X was surprised stating she did not know. My mom then asked if she got her bathroom breaks. Ms. X stated she refused. I have told her and put it in writing that she still must go & sit on the toilet. She doesn't really understand potty all the time and she must be made to go. Then, here's the clincher, in her usual Ms. X style, she said she was at speech and probably did it there. She still has to go back to the classroom, get her things and be picked up. ALSO, if Ms. X did her job, she would have to zip up MM's coat. Ms. X is always so quick to blame everyone else and does not take responsibility for things. I was LIVID to say the least. This is starting to border on neglect. I could not even address it on Thursday cause I would have made a complete a$$ out of myself if I had gone to the school. I tried to call the principal Friday morn and she was not there.
I guess I am going to have to call an IEP and get these things, which to me seem to be common sense, addressed. Don't let a five year old, who is functionally around 2.5-3 years, refuse the potty. Zip up the coat. Put on the hat. Help her eat. I am going to threaten to come over during the school day and take her to the bathroom, feed her and get her drinks. My mom would do it on days that I work. It is ridiculous & neglectful. I am also about ready to file a formal complaint with the state. She goes the whole school day without eating or drinking many days. She also does not go to the bathroom at all cause she lets her refuse. NEGLECT!
