I’ve mentioned a lot of different types of assessments in my last few posts.  Knowing what they are and how they differ can be really confusing.  Also, I tend to use the words “evaluation” “assessment” and “examination” interchangeably, which probably adds to the confusion.   Here are some links to information that define them and provide […]

IFSP to IEP Transition Planning- Part 3

| February 24, 2009

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 […]
