Ds annual IEP review was today and all is going well he continues to progress and is doing well in a mainstream setting with modifications. All great news right?! I still had a mini meltdown afterwards because we have started talking about high school and beyond for him (he will be 15 this month ) and even though dh and I have had lots of conversations about the fact he will most likely need extra help for the rest of his life, he will probably live semi independently. For some reason talking about that fact in the IEP left me feeling upset, kinda grieving the things that will most likely not happen for him such as a diploma (he will most likely be on a certificate track) going away to college etc...I love him for all of his wonderful qualities and bc he is my son and feel rotten that I still have these grieving moments. Not sure what the point of this post is other then to vent. Thanks for "listening"
