On Monday the 24th we had Lucy's annual IEP meeting. Prior to the meeting we sent letters requesting that everyone would attend and that we would be able to have a chance to see the goals ahead of time. That worked out great. We were able to ask our questions and get things ironed out before the meeting.
As we were all standing in the hall waiting for them to clear off a table, and I looked around at all of the professionals who invest their time and knowledge in my daughter and felt very overwhelmed with feelings of gratitude, and maybe a little guilt.
Classroom teacher, Assistant Teacher, Aide, Physical Therapist, PT Assistant, Occupational Therapist, OT Assistant, Speech Therapist, and City School Representative.
The meeting went well. Every party just talked about what a cute little girl Lucy is and how much they have seen her grow this year.
Lucy came with us to the meeting and just sat in a chair and colored and put together puzzles. She would cover her eyes and act shy when she realized we were all talking about her. I felt so proud of her. She's a big girl!
Here's an example of how much she has grown this year. The first picture is a self-portrait from the beginning of the year and the second one is from the end. These were done on her own! That is her name on the bottom of the second one. (the shadow is from the camera- I decided not to mess with doing it again)
