Re: [down_syndrome] mariah
- When are you moving?I just didnt feel Sydnie was ready for K.....her copying letters makes me nuts lol..............she too stays dry most of the time. How and why did you obtain an aid...Ive been told that Sydnie will mostly not need one right now....the thought of her starting next year makes me sick. She's going full days now...so thats not it....she's been at this school for 3 years....preschool 2 and then preK.....next year it will be the new school in our district..............ugh----- Original Message -----From: M PeckSent: Friday, December 16, 2005 9:11 AMSubject: Re: [down_syndrome] mariahAngie,She really is doing well. She loves going to school. We are working on the academics and making proper accommodations. We just finally got an assistive technology evaluation and they are installing IntelliKeys and Words with Symbols 2000 which are both to help her with her academics.She keeps herself dry at school now for the most part. Her aide takes her to the bathroom (opens door) and Mariah does her stuff.She totally shocked the OT, Speech, and Assistive technology persons when they tested her with the computer. She showed them she knew how to point, drag and handle the mouse without any problems.Sadly, we are getting ready to move to South Carolina in January and I hear they are not inclusion friendly. So, I am reading up on my rights and getting ready to "educate" t! hem on IDEA.Hope all is well with you and the family. Haven't been very good at keeping up with you but it is always nice to see your posts! Let me know how the girls are doing.You and your famliy have a wonderful holiday!Take care,Miriam
