If They Would Have Just Listened
I just need to vent a little. And surprisingly it involves Dakota this time. So I had been trying to get Dakota an IEP because I thought his expressive language was off. We had a meeting back in NOVEMBER. The school basically did NOTHING. I got VERY angry. Angry to the point my DH had to do the phone calling, etc. We went to school yesterday for yet another meeting because I asked for some testing to be done. And what did they find? He is behind in his expressive language. I've also tried to explain that he doesn't understand how to categorize language and some information. So if you give him too much information at one time he doesn't know what to do with it. Guess what? They finally saw it. GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! It just gets me that they took 6 months of dragging their heals. Then to basically find out I was right. I felt like they thought I was trying to say he's not smart or something. That is totally NOT the case at all. Dakota is actually REALLY REALLY smart. I really think there is so much information locked in his head, but because he can't express it he doesn't know how to let it out.
Okay I feel better. I just needed to get that out. I just get tired of being treated like an over-reactive mother BEFORE they do any testing or anything.
