When we met with MJ's teacher at the end of the year parent/teacher conference , she had all these plans for what she was going to do next fall. (MJ was in a full time gifted program where he had the same teacher for 1st and 2nd grade, so she would be his teacher again next fall.)
She said over the summer she was going to figure out this sort of word processor thing to see if MJ could use it to help get some of his assignments completed faster. She said she would set up an IEP in the fall and she would set aside one day the first week of the month to meet with us to discuss any concerns or answer any questions.
So, it sounded good. It sounded like he had a rough year trying to figure out what was going on, but now we knew, and next year would be good. We would be meeting more with the psychologists and pediatricians over the summer and be receiving more insights to help MJ.
And going into 2nd grade, was it good? Were all these things followed through? Were there any accomodations made? Was MJ improving?
Well, yes and no. It was interesting to see how things changed in 2nd grade.
