I really don’t have anything against Sophie’s speech therapist at school (except her not-super grammar). She’s the one who went to bat for the kids when the topic of the 90 to 1 kindergartener-to-adult ratio at lunch recess came up, and I know she loves Sophie.
But when I emailed her this morning to see how much time we have before Sophie’s IEP expires (in other words, how much time I have to find someone to interpret the draft they want me to sign, meet with the elusive school occupational therapist and otherwise assure myself that Sophie’s at least getting as much as I can hope to get for her without threatening legal action) I almost stuck my hand through my computer monitor when I saw how her response began (and in this exact font/color, which I can’t manage to change here):
Sophie’s IEP doesn’t expire until May 5, but we are being pushed by the district to have all IEP reviews completed and turned in to them by May 1st (next Friday). I’d like to have Sophie’s in by then if possible so I can get my “gold star” from the district. 🙂
