I am running down to Farmington today, about 20 minutes from us, to the Early Intervention Center to pick up her folder. Hopefully they will include everything i needed.
Is this similar to something you guys have experienced? Is there something i should make sure i point out? What happens if i feel like he doesnt believe us? He mentioned on the phone that Early Intervention should have already done her assessment. Well, i dont think they really have. I mean, she has had home visits up until last month, when they did a hunch of tests to confirm she still qualified for Early Intervention and for Free Preschool. Which she did. But her home visits have stopped. And when i would bring up my concerns to the therapists, it was more of a personal opinion on the matter. Like "Well, in my experience with her, she is too social, she blah blah blah, IN MY OPINION" BUT, these people are also in my home for 30 to 45 minutes ONCE a month. How in the heck do they know?? PLUS, Catie thinks anyone who comes to door is here for HER. I have to PEEL her off the UPS man. She freaks when he comes. She motions for him to come in and says "lets go!" And he thinks she is so cute.
But i mean, geez. If a parent mentions it multiple times, why dont they just test her to shut me up? you know???
PLEASE... any suggestions on how i can handle this to make sure i get out of this meeting what i need, would be greatly appreciated. Of course, i dont want her diagnosed incoorectly. I just want someone to be able to SHOW me she DOES or DOESNT have it and why they think that. You know?
