Toad’s Weekly Assessment #37-2018

Things did not work out at the Day Program for Little Bear as I had expected or hoped. They made it clear this time around their program simply isn’t designed for someone like my son. At least the public school in our district was very quick to respond and scheduled an IEP meeting for next week to get him back up and running over here in response to his early discharge.
