I have been a Teacher's Aide in an Intergrated/SPED Pre-School in the Public School System in MA for 5 years. Obviously, every state is different but here is what we do.
Each day I fill out A Daily Sheet. Teacher Approves it & I make a copy for each student. We have 7 on IEPs & 8 Peer Partners (typically developing 3-5 year olds, age depending on AM or PM program) It is a generalized form. Exp. favorite thing at Circle time, some things we played with, we went to Gym, played outside, letter of the week, and any notes for parents.
Each child on an IEP has a Parent/Teacher Communication Book. Similar idea but specific to your child. My Helper job was, At playtime I played (blocks with Joey), at snack I ate (all, some, none) I used the bathroom at (time) or I was changed at (time) I had (Speech, OT, PT, ABA, Vision)There is also a spot for teacher or parent notes.
Our program meets for 2 1/2 hours 4 days a week. Most of our kids get Speech 2x30 some are only 1x30 (so 90 min a month is puzzling to me) Those in OT or PT get the same. Very rarely a child will get 3x30 but I've seen it happen. An Evaluation needs to be done to determine how often these services are needed. As a Teacher Aide I am not a part of this process at all but I do know you can ask for an Re-Eval at anytime if you are not happy. You could also do an outside Eval (out of your own pocket) but keep in mind the results you get from that Eval have no effect on the services the School is required to give.
Good luck with your meeting! If you are not happy make sure they know it! We as parents are our Child's best Advocate!

I have two daughters in special Ed preschool. It was a huge transition from ei. I was use to being part of the therapy and getting home work and now I'm more an observer. I contact the teachers and therapists whenever I have a question or concern and can be a bit of a pita. I am also blessed to have one daughter who tells me everything that happens in her class. So when the teacher put her in a cardboard study carrel because she didn't want to color I went mama bear on her.

I talked with our service coordinator that supposed to helps us with the school and she is going to set up a meet with everyone in 2 weeks after spring break. This gives them and us time to get everything in order. I have done nothing but write everything down I want and expect. Think we will bring both our moms to listen and have things explained to since they are also involved in DS's up bringing and learning and they can help us understand things too. Still not sure about his class teacher if I even want her dealing with my son. Have to find out if there is another teacher he can switch too.

I'll keep everyone up todate on how things go in a few weeks.

Anouther question if you all don't mind.

DS has ABA Services 240min weekly and Multi-Disciplnary Group 90min monthly.

I looked online for info on these things and it is to confusing to me. Anyone able to explain it to me and do you think what they are providing is an ok amount?

ABA Services is new to our program so I'm not very familiar with it. All our Staff is required to take an ABA Training Class so we can work with our ABA Specialist to help our students when she's not with them. At this time we don't have any getting ABA.

I haven't heard of a Multi-Disciplnary Group so I can't help with that one.
