Very Slow Chess Match.....

That's my best description of how all of our meetings are going/have gone. I feel like every sentence uttered needs to be thought out and reviewed to see what the strategic implications are for Trey's placement. I'd say our meeting yesterday leaves us still at a friendly stalemate. Our next step is Operation Teacher Swap (OTS). We will have teachers from the district preschool attend Trey's school and see firsthand what the similarities and differences are when it comes to the school's methodology. And then, the private school teachers and myself will be attending the district preschool to do the same. Having had a child already attend the district school, I know that they do an amazing job at teaching your average preschooler, and the mildly developmentally delayed. That said, since there is a more specialized option available, I prefer Trey's current school. Hope I haven't lost any of you :)

I'll let you know all about OTS when it happens. This is good, I've been pushing for this for the last year and 1/2!

Here's to keeping the placement that is best for Trey! This is his LRE and the best place for him to grow and learn.

I have been MIA lately and need to get caught up. It looks like you and i are in the exact same boat at the moment. You've managed to get teacher's to visit one another's school? How do you do that?? What a great idea!

Hi Heather, and Leah!

Heather....I'm not sure- I think I've asked them so many times, they finally agreed to go to get me to be quiet-LOL. Plus, they really have no idea what AVT is, and to understand it I think you have to watch a session.

Good luck and I'll be checking out your blog to see what *I* should be doing in addition to this :)
