Thank-you for your prayers. I was able to maintain my composure, stay focused and add some goals for Goldie despite a shaky beginning and rocky ending to the meeting.
My decision to switch to another service co-ordinator has been made very easily after this morning. The SC showed up without Goldie's PT eval. I know this could have been a mistake on the part of the PT, but the SC's job is to get that figured out BEFORE the IFSP not during or after. Then at the very end she mentioned that Goldie's cognitive eval hadn't been scored and tried to blame it on the VT. I did not let her pass the buck. It is her job to make sure it gets scored BEFORE the IFSP. I called the VT afterwards and she will be making sure it is completed, correctly.
Other highlights from the meeting would be her telling me she hopes Goldie doesn't qualify for waiver because that would be a lot of paperwork for her. She also didn't discuss transition like they are supposed to. I'm actually o.k. with that because I don't want to talk to her about it anyway! The brief conversation we did have led me to believe she doesn't know what our different options are.
I'm going to request a new SC and a review of Goldie's file to make sure everything is in order. Just curious, do you receive copies of your child's evaluation scores?
