Kennedy's meeting is over... Today was really just an eligibility meeting to make sure she's eligible for Special Ed services (which of course she is) and we talked about placement etc for Kindergarten.
She is going to be fully included in a typical kindergarten class :o). She will be pulled out twice a week for Speech therapy and once a week for Occupational therapy. We do have a few things to check into... I need to talk to her spine surgeon about P.E. class and what she can and cannot do. For example, I know she cannot do somersaults and stuff like that. If he wants her really restricted, she may go into PE with the Special Ed class, which is actually fine with me. I'm really worried about her injuring her neck. We'll see what her doctor says though and we can decide that in the Fall.
There's also the issue of her being able to carry her tray in the lunch room. I'm not too sure she can do that, she's so tiny. At home she will carry her empty plate and cup to the sink after dinner, but I wouldn't let her carry a full plate (heck, I just started letting Kassidy do that a year ago! haha) They had a great idea of us coming to eat lunch at school with Kass or Kam and just let Kennedy try it and see how it goes. She'll probably surprise me and do just fine! Wouldn't be the first time she has proved me wrong! ;)
The meeting went really well. I think she has a good team behind her to help her have a successful year. We'll meet in the Fall to write her goals for the year... and I really think that will be a fun meeting because they're not limiting her. I'm SO excited about Kindergarten!!! (Oh and I only teared up a couple times, but they were happy, proud tears, so I guess that's ok!) :o)
Thanks for all your words of encouragement, support and prayers!
