Quoting Cecelia712:

I'm glad things went reasonably well. It sounds like the teachers were being defensive rather than being open minded. They needed to realize it wasn't about them, but not all kids are cookie cutter shapes. Some need more or less of certain things. That's why its called SPECIAL ed!
I hope this good phase Sam is in lasts a while for you!
As for dentist, sorry to hear you're sore!

Totally agree and But think the therapist should have spoken up more

School meeting and a dentist appointment?  Are you a glutton for punishment?  :-)

Glad to see everything went pretty well!

Sadly, that is how most meetings with teachers of special needs students go.  I have had numerous ones, as well as gone to the ones for my grandchildren, and it's the same way.  I wish I had the degree for teaching, cuz I would open up a school for special needs children to get them away from teachers like the ones in the majority of the schools around.  I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers that school will go better for your child.
