Early Intervention says NO
My son is 38 months old. At 2 years 11 months I had him evaluated by Early Intervention. They said he didn't qualify for their services because he wasn't delayed. So I put the concern away for about a month and then it came back to nag.
Finally I pushed for an evaluation with the Sensory Integration Department at the local medical center. We just had that evaluation last week and they said not only does he DEFINITELY qualify but he DEFINITELY HAS SID/SPD. They did the Peabody scale with him and he was WAY behind.
But now that he is old enough for head start. They want an IEP from the school system. He doesn't get an IEP through this place.. What else can I do? Should I have him re-evaluated through Early Intervention now that he is out of the 0-3 category? I don't want to change his therapists as they see him 2 therapist to just him right now twice a week for an hour and I know Child Find won't give him that focused care but I want to try and smooth the road as much as possible for him in school and I'm overwhelmed about EVERYTHING.
