Today was Garrett's (Down Syndrome) IEP for next year. My biggest complaint over the past 4 1/2 years was them not providing him with individualized speech therapy. He had recieved speech therapy since he was involved in the ISD at the age of 2 months and in the school year 2003/2004, the dropped it and told me they weren't going to offer individual therapy, but were going to work with him in group therapy in his class. They also said they would just do sign language as they didn't feel he would progress any further speech. Well, I didn't like it, but if they didn't offer individual therapy anymore what could I do? So, today I go to his IEP and there are 3 new people there. They ask me if I liked the program and if I was dissappointed in anything. So I say I am disappointed that he no longer gets speech therapy as I thought he could benefit from it. One of the new people whips open his chart and reads how he had it for 12 years. He's like "Yea, I wonder why they dropped that. We can get him back in that." What's up with that? His teacher said a few things to try and "explain" that they did stuff in class. I still don't quite understand why they wouldn't offer it to him before even though I have expressed this concern every year since they stopped, but at least he'll be getting it back now!!
