For anyone who enjoyed my rant re: special ed and immersion school a couple days ago, I got a call from the school district. They think they've figured out a way to cobble together the services he needs at the immersion school. It's not completely locked in, but on the right track. Thanks for the support everyone
I'm not really interested in opting out and just homeschooling him because I, at least, have the resources to fight for improvements in the system, which not every SpEd family does. Also what he needs is practice relating to his peers, and what better way to do that than by learning something new together. He's academically super advanced so that's not an experience he's ever had. Hence language immersion.
I'm so disheartened. My kiddo is officially Special Needs now, and the school board is telling me they can't provide the services he needs at the language immersion school he lotteried into (and which I attended and am strongly committed to). Either we have a fight on our hands or something is going to have to give.
My kiddo has been asking and taking about death a lot lately. Fortunately he doesn't seem scared since I told him "death is not the end", which I guess is true enough from any perspective. I've answered more detailed questions through a "we believe" lens, with emphasis on resurrection and not needing to be afraid of death. Still tough to play it cool. Anyone been here?
