ok,im not sure what to do.when school starts back up we are going to be getting rubens IEP changed from ECDD to ASD.even with his dx on papper it still has taken us some time to get this changed.i have talked to you guys about this some what.(thank god)cause i really need every ones addvice.he has been at this school since september.its the only school that he has ever attended.i had no insurance for ruben at that time. so we were refered to project find and ended up at this school.it is not a autism school nor do they have a autism program.although his teacher has said that she worked with kids that had autism for ten years im not sure that is enough.what i like about the school is that there is only 2 other kids in his class,one teacher and a asst.that is what i like!his first IEPstated that ruben will get 20 min once or twice a week that is one of my problems.now when i go back to this meeting do i damand more speech or how do i go about doing that?also he has big time behavioural issue maybe not as much at school as he does at home but its still alot at school should the school be helping me with this?or is this something im on my own with.and who tells me if my son needs a O.T or a P.T is that the school,cause the ped is not telling me a damn thing!oh when we had the first iep i questioned the 20 min speech and thyey told me that he may get more time at some point but no more time has been added.and he is only attending class for 2 hours a day 5 days a week but the rest of the class stays for 3 hours they say he cant handle it.if i tell them i want that extra hour and that i want more speech do they have to give it to him?oh and when school started he was only going for 1hr and45min.so they did add more time.that was not at my request they did that on there own.but i think that he should stay for that extra hour.no matter if he likes it or not,i mean it took almost a year to get the ped to hear me when i was telling him i think my son has autism and 4 months to get the iep changed and that is if they even do it this month.i guess my point is if early intervention is the key then he needs more speech and that extra hour!here is another question,would any of you keep your child in this school considering the good and bad on all of this?all of this should have been in the advice colum sorry,i just couldnt stop!oh and what does AI mean?well i need to take my but to bed.good nite everyone hope everyone has a good day tomorrow.chrystal

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
We are surely all familiar with that lie that Trich tells us, "just one hair" "just pull one", "just one more". It's a lie that's hard to disbelieve in the moment, and it's only after we've indulged in the impulse that we realise we fell for it again. I created a similar thread over on Trich World a couple of years ago (the Trich social networking site) and it's still popular! So I thought I'd...
