IEP

I know many of you have been waiting to hear if we got Mariah's IEP written and the answer is yes! We are going to be sending her to special-ed pre-k for 4 mornings a week. She will have a 30 minute block each day in the regular pre-k room and will be evaluated for PT and OT when she starts school in August. That means we'll have to modify the IEP to include therapy as right now her IEP only focuses on goals in areas she was tested in. She is really excited! After this year we'll re-evaluate to see if she can attend regular kindergarten. They want her in special-ed right now so they can focus on more one on one work with her and because she is behind in a lot of skills.

I will write more about "tips" for surviving an IEP later. That's what the end result was though. Whew! Glad its done! I cannot stress enough that you should try to make sure that the people evaluating your adopted child are educated on what institutionalizing a child does to how they develop in ALL areas.

It sounds like you got it modified to more of what you were looking for, thats great! I think she will really enjoy it. I know Alina is really looking forward to going to school next year too, she talks about it often.



We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
