Rylie proved herself
During Rylie's first two IEP meetings, I wasn't pushing for full inclusion. Honestly, a part of me felt that she was going to need special ed in order to learn. I knew studies showed kids benefit from inclusion, so I definitely wanted her to have inclusion, I just didn't push for full inclusion. I didn't have to fight or push or struggle to get Rylie fully included. Rylie went to school and showed them for herself that she should be fully included.I know different needs will come up in the future. Maybe things will change for first grade, second grade..etc. But, now for kindergarten and for Rylie full inclusion is what's best. I'm relieved. I never felt right after the first two IEP's.
