Default Nice thing at a Conference today!!!

I attended a Case Conference for a student in one of the Schools. I've really had some rough cases with the Principal before. I have never known till today if I've really been welcome by him.

As we were discussing the evaluation results. I had been trying to figure
out how to get the category the student had. To stay, it was a more
severe as you would say. But because Indiana has a very strict rule, and
this student is going to probably go off diploma track, he will need the
chance.
(He has had a really rough life) And reads at a 3rd grade if that level, and can't even do division, and they aren't sure he will be able to learn. So Algebra is not considered doable for sure.

So they wanted to put him in more accessible for him English and Math classes. And change Science and Social Studies. But the psychologist was
kind of making it were we might have a problem with this later. Not right
now. But in 9th and on grades. (Which is next year)

Any way the principal reminds everyone we have a student that extra curricular and sports means the world too. He will work for the right for.

So they really want this to work. So I made the statement, I agreed with
him. THat this student needed to stay with this title. That he really had
other things that made the label possible.

He says, Donna, I'm so glad you agree with me. Because you don't always
agree with me. It was a laughing matter.

(He made it very obvious we have butted heads,) And I've usually won.

I thought wow, I am appreciated. It really made me feel good.
And since this is a foster dad, he felt like his son is getting good care, and
service too.

This student starts extra curricular tomorrow.

I'm so happy. It made my day.

That is so great Donna! You are helping make this young person's life better. I would want you as my advocate if I ever needed one.

Tuesday I helped a family understand what kind of classroom their child is
in. They kept thinking she was just being taught what ever the other kids
were being taught.

Even though the plan is Individualized.

They wanted to take as much computer out as they could. Because they
were sure the teacher's were just allowing the student to sit infront of
it all day.

The problem with this in this particular case. The student needed the computer, because she has a Visual impairment. that at times the computer is easier to teach her with.

There were some problems with how homework was being done at home. With out the accomodations at school. This is being worked on. Without
much thought from me. They figured it out before I got out much wording.

The other one I'm waiting on confirmation a student is starting his transition
into new program.

I hope this one is going well too. He is starting a adult program. He had
outgrown the school program, but still has a 1 1/2 for school to pay.

Which is a benefit to him.

Well I really need everyone in this room to send prayers for one of
my families. The child was taken for a possible admission into
a ward last night.

We have known for a while something is not right. But they don't
know what is going on. I have suspected that the ADHD diagnosis
isn't correct, so has the mom. She got confirmation yesterday for
the psychologist that she got a emergency therapy session with.
It was the first time the child saw her. But I knew the name, and
she is good. This child also has seizure's and is also considered
bi-polar by some. But I don't think he is. The seizure's and the misdiagnosis
are throughing things off bad right now.


The student is supposed to have a meeting with his psychiatrist today in
indy at Riley, but I'm really hoping that the Hospital that has the ward kept
him. Its a different hospital, but its a very good one. Its one Derrick
spent a week in. About 10 years ago. Before he started with a psychiatrist or psychologist at all. And they have a neurologist/psychiatrist that is in charge of the ward. So its really a good place for him to be.

I'm waiting on word. I am worried that the mom is stressed, but she
will handle this. She is a strong person.


The one thing I don't like about yesterday, they gave her the name of
a attorney, and also told her a residential ward. That the school would
have to pay.

Ugh, the school hasn't done all they can to get to that point yet.
I might be able to talk this particular principal into that. But the state
wont agree to helping fund it just yet. I wish outside sources would
think about what is required and what is acceptable before giving that
advice.

I'm praying for this boy Donna - that he would get good care and a proper diagnosis.
