Dads,

I have a special request of you this evening...tomorrow morning Shari and I have to meet with school officials at 830 to discuss Ethan's testing for his IEP due to his dyslexia. They have been doing all sorts of testing on him since the start of school and they are now wanting to go over the results with us. We have been told by the principal who has been through this with her own child) to prepare ourselves to hear things that we do not want to here, and that we will more than likely feel as though we are in front of a firing squad. She also said that this will take upwards of 2 hours to go over the information that has been gathered. Say a prayer for us that maybe it wont be as hurtful to hear the things they will say and that we will be able to use the information to help Ethan and get him whatever help it takes to make him feel good about himself (he has a very low self esteem) and learn at the same level and speed as the other children. I know that we have a prayer and praise thread but I wanted to bring it here instead where I feel the traffic might be greater. Thanks guys!!!

I tend to be cautious online, especially given the fact that I work in a public position. The fact that this group is as open as it is, and can talk about just about any subject without devolving into flame wars is a minor miracle, in my opinion. Maybe the love of Disney and family just seems to attract a certain kind of person.

I guess it's that whole Disney magic.

That is really freakin cool.

But, it's $400 times 4. While it is a good deal, it is more than we can spend.

I am the planner when it comes to money and budgets, but just figure it out as I go most everywhere else.

our prayers are with you guys steve!! briana had an iep all through school. 2nd grade on. we had meetings every year and the first one they went over her testing results. you are looking at correctly. there not putting him down, they are just finding a starting point to help him. they have to find out whats wrong before they can "treat" him. they will come up with a plan of attack and will change as they need. maybe some things work, some dont. our school was great. most of her high school years she didnt take any help which mostly was more time to take a test and they would even read it to her if she wanted. she never had them read her a test. she said that would be great if you follow me around the rest of my life and read things for me.
she out grew it. got the help she needed and moved forward. she now carries a 3.5 in her sophmore year in college. hang in there buddy, he will do great!
