She has made excellent progress with her goals for this year, though, she hasn't quite mastered all of them (hello, potty training!). I can hardly believe this too-smart-for-her-own-good chatterbox was only speaking in exact quotes, unable to answer questions at this time last year. It doesn't even seem possible! We discussed her new goals, which I can give in more detail once I get my copies of the meeting, and set up her accommodations for next year.
She may be changing campuses next year, which makes me a little sad as I have LOVED everyone we've encountered at her current campus, but the opportunity sounds like a good one. They are setting up an advanced PPCD classroom for the district, so the kids who naturally excel, but also need special education services can meet their IEP goals while being challenged beyond the scope of those goals. There will be a special education teacher and a general education teacher present at all times and the class will be a mixture of high functioning special education students and general education peers. KayTar was nominated for being such a little smarty-pants. This will be the first year for the program and they aren't certain it will get off the ground in time, in which case she will stay at her current campus with her current teachers.
I know many parents have trouble with their children getting appropriate service and placement, but (with the exception of that little attendance issue earlier this year) we have had a WONDERFUL experience with KayTar's school and our district. The administration and staff have been friendly and helpful, and everyone knows and loves KayTar. You just can't resist that kid!
