If your child is in special education, what is their eligibility category?
Brady's label/category is Multiple Disabilities with 2 subcategories - Autism & Other Health Impairment which includes ALL of his diagnoses.
Jacob -autism and HSP cause he is wheelchair.
I can't figure it out :/ I don't see it on the IEP
My son is 'other health impaired'. Since he aged out of Developmental Delay at 5, and there is no category for his DX, he is considered 'other health impaired'.
Some school systems give all children "developmental delay" until they are age 7 OR when they go into Kindergarten. Technically, by law here in VA, children can have DD as the label until they are 7 years old and then after that, it has to be updated and changed to something more appropriate. I'd definitely ask about your kids to see what it is and if it needs to be updated before next year. I'd fight for both of them to have Autism labels if you can. That will get them the most services overall. You might want to do Multiple Disabilities for Macy since she has DS too...you can have Autism and ID as her two sub categories. Make sense?

Remind me...what is his Diagnosis? Other than Epilepsy? I can't remember:)

When she was in public school she was going to be 'severely emotionally disturbed'. She has ODD.
Is she homeschooled now? Or in private school?

I completely agree!
Quoting jjamom: Alex's is ID. I hate that there is no code for DS because it has so many facets to it, affects so many areas, not just cognitive which ID would have one think. :/
