DD gets speech therapy at school. It started in pre-school and I loved that therapist...she would send home updates and homework for us to do with DD to enforce what they went over during their sessions.
But there is a different therapist starting in Kindergarten. I got no updates and I got no homework. I patiently held out until the IEP meeting in March 2012 (which was DD's Kindergarten year, but we were updating IEP for her 1st grade year). Because I hadn't received anything, I had it added in the new IEP to send me updates. Therapist wrote in she would send every 5 weeks. I asked that she put in there to send me homework. Therapist said she didn't do that because it's her experience that parents don't follow up. I told her I was not one of those parents and asked for homework again. She said she would send home what she could (never wrote in IEP).
1st grade starts and we are now in March. The only "updates" I have received are the ones she has to do for the state every 9 weeks. I received some homework the first couple of months and then it just stopped.
This afternoon is our IEP meeting to update for DD's 2nd grade year. I will again say I want updates every 5 weeks and will again say I want homework and I will make sure that BOTH are written in the IEP...but obviously even being written in there doesn't give this therapist reason to do it. What can I do to make sure this stuff gets done?
