Iep meeting this morning... And this mom is packing an advocate for backup!!! 

Im bringing the big guns (advoctae, NOT really bringing guns--- I said this on the phone to a friend last night and Sam thought I was bringing guns!!! Lol) so the school needs to be truthful and helpful!!!! 

she is coming with me and Hubs to the meeting. We have gone over everything- and we are getting stuff to help Sam. 

Cross your fingers!

Good for you and how lucky to have an advocate with you.  There is safety in numbers for sure.  Hope everything turns out well and you leave having been heard and your wishes respected!

Good Luck - we were amazed at how the tone of the meetings changed (in a good way) once we hired and advocate and she started attending meetings.  I hope you are able to get what Sam needs!

Good luck! We have my daughter's IEP this morning & I've already had to take some Tums. We're packed with our attorney. Last time was a screaming match & we were pretty much thrown out of the office, attorney and all. Hoping for something productive this time around especially after having paid the attorney fees.
