Better than we hoped!!!

We had our meeting with Frisco ISD this afternoon to map out Will's schooling for the year. After a bunch of stress and anxiety, we were pleased with how the meeting went.

Will will be in a PPCD class with 7 other children every day from 12-3 p.m. He'll receive speech and occupational therapy, as well as music therapy. The staff seems eager to work with Will in helping to address his special needs. I had a whole list of questions to ask and was thrilled that the staff actually addressed them before I got to them. I definitely feel confident at this point that between the school district and any private therapy we provide that Will's needs will be met this year.

We've also approved a psychological evaluation to determine if Will needs an autism evaluation. We meet again in 30 days to discuss the staff's observations and findings and will learn then whether or not Will will be diagnosed on the spectrum. I'll keep you posted on that.

Back to school night is tonight and one of us will be taking Will back over to the school. We're waiting for some furniture for Will's room to be delivered this evening so unless it comes soon, we both won't be able to go. Oh well.

Oh, and it looks like we're going to put Will on the school bus this year. The school will provide door-to-door transportation for Will. The school is literally about 5 minutes away - probably a mile away in total - so I don't mind putting him on the bus this year. It'll be so easy now that we have Bryn in the mix!!!
