I was just wondering how your child with a disablility was treated in the public school system. Did you have to fight for their therapies, IEP, etc.Answer Question
We're fortunate that when my son aged out of ECI, they got him set up for his assessment with school district. Now that he's in the Early Childhood School for Speech and Language Delay with Social/Emotional Difficulty there shouldn't be an issue with continuing services when he starts Kindergarten. My SIL however had to fight tooth and nail for her son to be tested for ADHD when he was in the 3rd grade. It's easier when you're just going into the system to get the help your child needs instead of midstream.

We had no issues but my son was receiving full day special ed services from the time he turned three. Advanced speech delay, social delay, fine and gross motor delays. Visual motor integration problems, spacial perception difficulty and to top the list..he was dyslexic. He was mainstreamed in the 7th grade. In the 9th they told me in an IEP meeting IN FRONT OF MY CHILD that he would never get out of 9th grade. My son graduated high school in 2004 and has gone on to complete Fire Academy and EMT school. When he graduated I allowed him to address an announcement for his graduation to THAT counselor..he put a hand written not in it that said "B***h remember me"
