I hate the feeling that my child has been treated unfairly. It makes my heart pound. I get aggitated. I get mad and angry and I want to yell at someone!
This is how I feel right now. Mad.
I was sitting in my living room this evening, feeling bored. So I looked up some old blogs I sometimes read. I came across one I found of a sweet family that has the most beautiful little girls ever. I love following their fun adventures. Well, one blog post was about how her four year old was getting evaluated for speech delay. Mom wasn't really concerned and didn't really even want her daughter in preschool. But according to the evaluation, her daughters speech was delayed and she qualified.
Mom listed her scores and I realzied that my son was MORE delayed than her daughter in speech. My son also had social conerns. And language concerns. The only "issue" her child has was speech.
And her school district gave her an IEP with preschool that included speech services.
What did my son get? A one hour phonology class that meets ONCE a week! No more.
No preschool, no nothing. Just a stupid group that only meets for an hour a week. And if that day happens to fall on a school holiday or inservice day, too bad. No make ups.
It just makes me SOOO MAD!!! Why is it that one district can offer more services than another??
