Well today is the first meeting with the school psychologist to start paperwork for ds to attend  special Ed preschool. He is already having issues this morning so she should get to see him during one of his meltdowns lol. This is the beginning of a series of meetings. Not quite sure if she is going to do an evaluation with him or just loads of paperwork. Wish us luck. Will update later


things went okay at his first meeting. The evaluator was being evaluated so we had an extra person in the room. They are going to test him for ASD Feb 22. Then he will have to be evaluated by an OT and a speech person and will have to meet the teacher of the special Ed preschool. Lots of apps coming up

Good luck! There is a lot of good information about the entire IEP process at http://www.wrightslaw.com/, and it is free to read. You should also read http://www.autism-society.org/ and http://www.autismspeaks.org/ for more information.

Good luck! We did this a year ago. Their testing proved to be pretty grueling for my son, we were there over 3 hours.
