I was all sorts of nervous leading up to yesterday’s annual IEP meeting. We all can get a little anxious going into a potential minefield.
But, Husband and I were pleasantly surprised that it was not that bad. It wasn’t too long and everyone seemed to agree on B’s progress and goals. No changes were made to his services, always a good sign. His teacher is also going to work on a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) that will also be helpful to work on his behavioral issues.
Then I realized – this IEP “really” only goes to the end of this year. Because B starts Kindergarten, we will have an amended IEP meeting towards the end of this year to look at next school year. That one will probably be a doozy, since we’ll now have a new cast of characters to deal with.
We haven’t even formally decided what we are doing in regards to Kindergarten but we are trying to flexible about our options. Except for placement in a self-contained classroom, which is a big emphatic NO.
Not only that, but I just got notice of our eligibility services meeting. Two days after I’m supposed to register him for Kindergarten. I think the County is trying to smother me with meetings.
