dk: My son rec’d mega amts of great ei work from when he was 16 mos old- pre k. now he is in 3rd grade and b/c he has learned to “fit in” with peers- acc. our iep team- he has lost all services- even though he still seems to need the accommodations w/ standardized testing, exec. functioning, etc. other peers with the same bkgrnd as my son who “fit in” with peers and don’t act out are also losing services even though their parents report the same challenges that are now being un-served.
is there a “backlash” happening with public schools? the public school seems to only look at what an “old stereotype” is for a child with an asd vs. figuring out how to meet the continuing needs of kids who are “higher functioning” b/c of ei services, yet still need support- is this a real trend or unique to a few school districts in maine?
