Yep you guessed it, it’s that time of year. The first IEP of the year. High school IEP… I feel like it was a first date, kinda nervous never having done a high school IEP thus far in my life.
Can we take note of the fact yet again high school(silently crying in the corner, me not him)
Back to it. So get the notice of the upcoming IEP.. ok I got this for a week pumping myself up, because I got this. I have worked too hard for 10 years of ieps to be told something different because he is in high school.
So you know I have to talk myself up a little. Get there taken into a giant room, mind you the bell rang and what seems like the entire state of West Virginia in the hallway. It’s to say the least a little intimidating.
But sit down go over everything, that I want, what zeq wants talking and talking. They look at me and agree to every single thing without hesitation. They even add more things I didn’t think of. What?!?! I was surprised to say the least.
I will say he finally has an aide. She will make sure he gets to classes, lunch, picked up. He has all the essentials we have been fighting tooth and nail just given to us.
High school is much much easier. It is also very nice to know they care so much about their students. That they know how to spell his name and what his favorite things are because they have read his file and not just flipped through it.
So that wasn’t bad at all. Quite frankly it was a relief.
Tomorrow will come and tomorrow will go. But as for today we know that his high school years are taken care of. So that is a weight off of our shoulders.
Until tomorrow we will do as always do
Onward and upward
