We started off a bit sassy this morning but I think we’re going to end it with a much better perspective. A very productive IEP meeting would do that.
The IEP conference went well. Much improvement from Emma. She’s not easily frustrated with her work like she used to be. Her SPED teacher thought that maybe we changed something in her medication. I had to correct her because Emma gets NO medication whatsoever. That’s something we were adamant about ever since she got her diagnosis. IF she needs it when she’s older then we’ll cross that bridge. She responds well when she receives positive feedback from her teachers.
AND, believe it or not, these eraser caps calm her down. She likes rubbing her upper lip with it when she’s doing school work. Her homeroom teacher noticed it too so we all agreed that whatever works, we’ll keep it. So, she’s going to start her testing assessment with her Speech teacher, Occupational Therapy teacher, and some other grade level stuff. I’m really glad that Emma has a good team behind her. I get anxious whenever I get that IEP meeting schedule every year but we’ve always had good discussions about Emma’s progress and whatever the next steps we should take to help her even more so I can’t complain.
