Apologizes that I have disappeared from the face of the planet but I’ve been going through a lot. My daughter turned 4, so I got very busy planning her birthday party. We found out we were moving so trying to find a perfect school for our Autistic child was no easy feat. Trying to find a place to live in a city I’ve never really been to, then Halloween crept up, Thanksgiving and now Christmas. I didn’t even decorate much for those holidays because I was unpacking, cleaning, trying to keep my child entertained while she wasn’t in school.
The worst part of my move was trying to get my daughter enrolled in elementary school! I thought I was being a great planner I called schools in the district that I knew we were moving into at least two and a half months in advance, We found the school she was supposed to go to and all we needed was proof of our address I sent them her IEP TWO MONTHS before we were scheduled to move. One week before the movers were scheduled I get a call from the school saying oh sorry, we wont be the school she will be attending because of her age. The school she was supposed to go to was a transitional kindergarten (very similar to what she was already in) they tell me she has to go to pre school, which is not offered at that school, so I had to start all..over..again… It took a MONTH before she went to school. They told me they needed ORIGINAL paperwork from her other school for her IEP paperwork which took weeks, we also had to wait for the psychologist to read the paper work which took another couple of weeks and finally we had to wait for the psychologist to be available to meet my daughter. In the end so far we are very pleased with her school. She is in a small class room size for 5 kids and also interacts with most kids that a Neurotypical and is flourishing.
Long story short, I’m back and will be sharing in detail what I have been up to. Again I’m sorry I disappeared but I’m back baby!!
