 have IEP, have resource classes for your child, if he need it. if he has anxiety, ask for aid to be in school with your child, by the end of the year, if goals in IEP, wasn't meat, ask for a meeting. maybe he needs to be in mainstream class, maybe, special learning class. on a IEP  meetings, don't let professionals, make you feel stupid.  look for changes in your child behavior, maybe he needs phyciatrist, social skills group. post any time.

Do you mind me asking if you intend to mainstream?  My son is in a small church based playschool but his ASD/ SPD is getting more pronounced and the treacher is having difficulty with him.  We are considering the local SN pre-school, but are afraid to "type cast" him so early (he turns 4 this month, so another year before kindergarten, or two if we keep him back), and not sure how much a SN pre-school would prepare him for mainstreaming or would the system then automatically try to push him into a SN school/ classroom.

My son, Logan is 4 1/2 years old.   We were denied services when he was 2. They said he had great eye contact, so he did not have autism.  I feel it's definitely Asperger's.  All the classic text book symptoms, from  what I have read.  We are in the process of referral to Far Northern Regional in Chico, CA.  We had the public school system here do some evals and he does not qualifiy for an IEP because he tested too high.  Of course his motor skills and social skills were all 0, but the rest were very high.  The public school is rushing us for a diagnosis; which is NOT going to happen.  The Far Northern Regional Center wants me to insist that the public school system start OT immediately.  We are in a catch 22...  I am 100% willing to do ALL I can to help my son!!!  ANY SUGGESTIONS????
