Am I asking the right questions? Touring the right schools? Filling out enough applications?
Did they get our application? Why haven't they called?
Is Norrin what they're looking for?
Do I really need a lawyer?
Will I have the money to pay for a lawyer?
What will happen?
Will it all just work out? I am sure it will. But some certainty would be nice.
The thing with Turning 5 is that you only have so much control over what's going to happen. And I'm scared.
But - GOOD NEWS! - we had our CPSE annual review and I went in well prepared to fight for continuation of services. (Our CPSE administrator said home-based SEIT hours may be reduced from 10 to 4.) So I had my evals highlighted, pages tabbed. I created an agenda, ready to drop "as per Section 200. 13..." Before I could get to any of that, I heard "all services remain the same." Sweet Victory!
And we've already interviewed with the school of my dreams. We've had our CPSE annual review. We've spoken with a few lawyers. I've toured my first of five District 75 public schools. I attempted to register for kindergarten (at my zone public school - even though I know he cannot function in a typically classroom). We have another school interview coming up. AND, our Turning 5 meeting is coming up. The mother of all meetings. So for the next few weeks, blog posts, may be short and sweet.
