So does this mean the school is on board?

 So, I met some resistance with the school about my sons Apraxia diagnosis.  They agreed he had a significant speech delay but they were thinking his delays were more cognitive.  I didn't agree, but allowed them to do their own testing.  Well apparently, he did great and doesn't have a significant enough cognitive delay to meet disability standards, and now are requesting I bring the paper work showing his Apraxia that Children's Hospital wrote.   I am confused as to why when they re-did his IEP they didn't have the same findings?  Why they are pushing more of a cognitive delay?  At any rate, I am glad that may start listening to me instead of saying "I read too much on the Internet and scared myself"  I think she thought I self-diagnosis, instead of actually having real proof and backup.

They may not truly understand what apraxia is and decided you must just be crazy.  My daughter has apraxia, but no cognitive delay at all.  My son had a global delay and when he got his tonsils out he started meeting milestones.  He was so far behind I thought he might be a little mentally handicapped.  I was so relieved when he started getting better.  but now I really see the difference in apraxia and cognitive delay.
