My son Brandon with Down's Syndrome for the last six years has had speech at school because he is very limited verbally. He uses some sign language, but not fluently. He just graduated from fifth grade and I was looking at his IEP (Individual Educational Program). He had been receiving speech therapy three times a week. They confused me at the meeting, calling it articulation therapy. Has anyone ever heard of this? Anyway, they cut him back to only one day a week due to slow progress. Is it just me, or wouldn't you want to keep him on the three day a week due to slow progress rather than once a week? Since it is the end of the school year, I plan on asking about it the first of the next school year. What do you think I should do?
