IFSP to IEP Transition Planning- Part 4

| April 22, 2009

So… I finally got that observation at Lyra’s preschool…just 4 days before she was scheduled to begin her evaluation period. The afternoon preschool class goes from 12:30PM to 3:30PM and I stayed and observed for most of that time. I think it went well overall. Lyra’s teachers have been really nice and very open and […]

In my last post about Lyra’s IFSP-IEP transition, I  said I would post the answers to my questions, in my next post.  I apologize for keeping you all waiting for so long.  I had intended to write that post before Lyra’s transition meeting on February 6th.  We  have already had that meeting, so I have […]

IFSP to IEP Transition Planning- Part 2

| January 9, 2009

Continuing from Part 1 of my post… Prior to our pre-“transition meeting” meeting last month, I knew very little about the districts preschool program.

However, I knew that was not […]

Session with TVI and OT

| October 15, 2008

Normally Lyra’s TVI and OT come separately.  Lately they have been coming for visits together to try and work with Lyra outside where she is less familiar with the environment.  However, the last two Tuesday’s when they have come, it has been raining outside. So, here is a video of their latest visit.
