All Cole's therapies are now at school. Hate not being involved. I've been nursing a broken leg and complications since Aug. As soon as I'm well enough I want to get him back into therapy after school with the therapists that knew him so well and I trusted.

He is in a self contained, 10:1:2 pre-k classroom. His in school therapy schedule is:

PT 3x a week   30 mins each

OT 4x a week  30 mins each

SP 4x a week...3x individual  & 1x group ....30 mins each

Our son only gets therapy at preschool.   

Pt 30minutes 1day a week.

Speech therapy 20minutes 2times a week.

Ot is 10minutrs a week but at our iep she said she don't even really deal with him. Cause school says he fine.  

I guess it don't matter he has autism.  Yes I'm calling a lawyer very soon after lunch. And I work with him a lot at home. I'm his teacher.
