Rylie's IEP

We had Rylie's IEP meeting this week. This was not a year of great progress unfortunatly. She will now be going to pre school one extra day per week and her therapy time will be increased a little. Of course this didn't come without "pushing" on our part. This is the first time Vince has gone to an IEP meeting. He is the advocate in our family when it comes to Rylie's education. The reason she hasn't made much progress this year is because of her behavior.She is having trouble focusing. She doesn't want to sit still long enough to learn something new. She is getting a behavior plan for school. We are also getting her a behavior specialist for home.She is so smart and so capable of learning. She is just so stubborn w/ a short attention span.I am hopeful all this behavioral therapy will really help her and us. Rylie is also going to be getting evaluated for kindergarten. We have our first transition meeting in January. We have the option to keep her in pre school an extra year. We are still undecided. I think we will let them do the whole evaluation before we make a decision.I have always dreaded this time. I just want her to stay little!

This is part of what I just don't look forward to, and granted, I don't have to think about it quite yet. But I have felt the same thing about Braska...wouldn't things just be easier if she just stayed a baby? That's just silly, but still...
