So true. Now if the schools could just understand this it would be great.
I know right?! In my district after going through the IEP process we realized that he needed to join their autistic program. Thankfully he had the diagnosis to back it up and that they have this program or else he would be stuck in IEP and not doing so well.
Totally agree, yet 2 of my kids have never yet to pass a single goal in 2 years. So frustrating - not with my kids, but that maybe the goals are not realistic. I just really dislike the IEP process.
Yes! So true ! My son rarely meets goals as well, but we work really hard and I do see progress . I do think they set the goals too lofty sometimes. They want him to stop talking about his restricted interests and have conversations that don't revolve around them. Which would be great , except that this year for the first time I have seen him looking for people who share his restricted interests and using them to connect with people . he has made three friends who like to play roblox , his favorite computer game. i consider this great progress, even though it wasn't the goal that was set for him. I think they forget that sometimes our kids need stepping stones.
