Dylan's IEP went off without a hitch. It was refreshing to go into a meeting and hear about all the things that Dylan can do, not the things he can't. I heard over and over that he was just a delight for them to assess and was as cute as can be with his sweet, happy and easy going personality. I think it really helped that we were all on the same page with regards to Dylan's needs and goals.
The recommendation from the school district is for him to attend a special needs school that has a M.O.V.E. program. The MOVE (Mobility Opportunities Via Education) program is great because the school has standers, walkers, gait trainers, etc... and all of the teachers are MOVE trained. So, throughout the school day Dylan will be placed in a gait trainer/walker to work on his mobility be it in the classroom or out on the playground, they will also work on his other gross motor skills such as pulling to stand, crawling, etc... They also have a Speech therapist, PT and OT at the school that come and work with all the children. It really seemed like the best place for him, developmentally and socially. He would be placed in the orthopedic class for children that are working on crawling and walking. There is a 2:1 student/teacher ratio so I think that he would be well cared for. Now we just need to decide when we want him to start. I still can barely get my mind around the fact that he will be turning 3!
