Kristen: My mediation agreement gained a lot of services for my son. The agreement noted that a triennial would be held before the year end. So this spring (April) I asked when it was? You guessed it – they rapidly booked it and sort of did their assessment.
My son is verbal, but the IQ testing they did was for non-verbal. Excuse was he had been tested twice recently in the last two years and probably knew the test. “Besides, they are basically the same” – Really?!
I foolishly assumed the district would take into consideration all the services this agreement offered over the last year because the end of the mediation I was told I was not to talk about the agreement. There was no discussion of the services that the district was covering this last year, and only school tuition and private SLP were kept. They eliminated private therapy to offer their therapist service. BUT will not cover his writing tutor (dysgraphic, school site can’t address) nor OT (his gross and fine motor skills are improved, don’t see value in his sensory diet needs)
Haven’t signed it…but he needs ESY.
