Dave qualified for Speech...

I think the SLP was being really helpful because he qualified on only one consistent articulation difficulty. Otherwise his language was above age level. I was looking at Mike's stuff and his language was actually 6 months behind with some significant gaps and he didn't qualify (needed to be one year). I just think it is odd that Mike who had more language problems didn't qualify, while Dave did.

Anyway, because he qualified for speech services he can get OT if he qualifies, which he will. I guees Cal Ave. still thinks OT is not a stand alone service and if Dave didn't get speech, he wouldn't get OT. I think that is why teh SLP was trying to be helpful. I was really surprised that he qualified and was ready to start fighting for OT as a stand alone.

Now I have to figure out how to get them to give Mike OT when he is only on a 504, but that is another post.
