Meeting At The School

Sweetie finished all her testing right before she went into detention, so we had a pre ARD meeting yesterday at the school.  We had such a great meeting.  The plans that will be set into place when she returns to the school will start from least restrictive and if she handles that well, they will remain, if she can’t they will act quickly to change her IEP to reflect her exact needs until we all get it right.

I could not ask for a better team of people.  We had some questions about things written in the plan which included a teddy bear and stress balls, but it was explained that these COULD be tools used to help her calm herself if needed.  If they don’t help, other things can help including zentangles etc.

Sooo, the complication is that she is no longer in the district.  Her final meeting will be at the detention center. That makes me a little nervous because it will be a completely different set of people. 🙁
But we will press on.

    *hugs* I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately. I know this is hard. I’m praying for you and all your sweeties.

    I’m a little confused about why she’s no longer in the district if you still have custody of her and are her parents….even if she is temporarily sleeping elsewhere (so to speak).

      The detention center is in a different district so they had to transfer her to the district in which she is attending school.
      They will transfer her back when she gets out.

    Always another layer, huh?

    Who knows. Maybe a fresh start will be exactly what she needs.
    A new beginning will be a good thing once she’s more centered.
    I can only imagine that you can barely believe the new experiences you are having as a parent. But you’re resliancy is quietly teacher her a most important life lesson. We can do hard things.

    Be well.
