Nicole: My 4 year old son was receiving “push in” itinerant speech services at his private preschool in our old school district (which was located in a different district).
We recently moved into a new school district half way through the year. The new district will not offer the same services. They tell me they do not provide transportation for itinerant services either. Their offer of services would require that we leave during the work day to transport my child to their school for 45 minutes speech session. We are unable to do this as our jobs do not allow that flexibility to leave during the day/come back. The school day is until 3 pm. Are there any other alternatives I have? Or do I just have to accept my son will not be able to access any speech services until Kindergarten?
