Hi Doby, If I were you I'd be concerned about the statement that "The teacher and the one councelor were clueless as to what PDD-NOS was." Federal law requires that the IEP evaluation be administered by a professional who speciallizes in your child's disability. If there is noone at your school who ...

I would just like to echo the thing about doing well up until 3rd grade, then starting to struggle after that. IEP is a very important tool to get accomodations for your child. The IEP process and schools in general are not perfect, but they can be helpful. I also agree that the schools will try to ...

I have a related question on the topic of spaciness, specifically for Aspies: Is spaciness something that you can control? In other words, can you go spacy at will? Or is this just something that happens beyond your control? The reason I am asking is because of my son, 14 yr old Aspie, who I think h...

DW thanks for the wisdom. I'm not afraid of making a change when one is needed, I just don't want to go "from the frying pan into the fire." :D Your post is really helpful, Thanks.

Thanks eveyrone, I really appreciate the ideas. Willard: his academic goal is to graduate high school. That's his goal for his reasons, we're not forcing it on him. The problem is that his current school doesn't appear to be able help him accomplish that goal, and one option we have is to switch sch...

Since you've asked for opinions, here are some of mine: 1. Its a diagnosis, not a label. A diagnosis is something a medical doctor makes in order to recommend treatment. 2.

Thanks to all who have replied, there is so much ground to cover. DW-a-mom: Thanks for welcoming me to WrongPlanent, and for your thoughtful comments. My son is in an academic support period, but there is no way that one teacher/aide will know all of his assignments so having someone check his plann...

We've experienced this spaciness with my 14 yr old son, and it does seem to get in the way of accomplishing tasks and being independent. We've come to accept it for the most part, but it can be very frustrating because there are just times in life when you have to focus. I've often wondered about th...
