Sensory IEP goals-is that possible? school OT says it's not
Hi-I have a 5 year old diagnosed with ADHD and obvious sensory seeking behaviors-to me(mom-a PT), neuropsych, pediatrician, private school teachers, neurologist and i have documentation from all MDs. Problem is his OT in public school is refusing to give him sensory diet.
we went to mediation over this and had an independent OT eval done since mediation and she stated he needs more than we even requested including a sensory diet, pull out, extra transitioning time etc-anyhow my point is-are there specific sensory goal examples i could find somewhere? the school OT is I believe just not wanting to budge-our IEP meeting is this Thursday for followup after mediation and i doubt she is going to budge-classroom has available sensory accommodations-not enough in my opinion-he can't self select either. OH my-if you could forward IEP goals that would be appropriate much appreciated.
she (public school OT) stated clearly you can't make up goals for sensory seeking behaviors-i bet she's trying to get out of putting ot services on IEP for sensory seeking behaviors, period. private school is doing sensory activities and have documented improvements in behaviors after sensory activities. crazy.
