  •  IEP (6+ / 0-)

    My 3 year old got an IEP after being diagnosed with autism, manifesting in a speech delay. She started attending a charter school in August which serves both typical kids and kids with varying types of special needs. It has been fantastic for her and for me. Her speech has improved so much in a few weeks and I've often had to drag her out of school at the end of the day, kicking and screaming, because she loves being there. I have been able to meet many other parents, traded stories, felt less neurotic, and found a little community there.

    I love that she is getting the help she needs there, but I am equally thrilled that she is socializing with all kinds of kids, different races, abilities, etc and finding that perfectly normal.
