IFSP (I think)

Goldie's IFSP is in the morning. Please say a prayer that I have both wisdom and composure. I was told of the IFSP date by Goldie's PT. Her service co-ordinator has yet to call me. I don't think I've seen or spoken to her since January! I do not plan to confront her about this tomorrow. I don't think it would be appropriate in front of the therapists. But, I am ticked. I should have been the first person called and then a letter is supposed to be sent out to each therapist. Last year, she didn't invite the Vision Therapist. I complained to her supervisor because my kid is legally blind and was receiving VT every week. How do you forget that?

So, this year the VT called her to find out the date of the IFSP. She won't be able to make it, but I'm ok with it because we are decreasing services in that area. At least until we see what the new eye dr. wants to do as far as surgery goes. IF she has surgery, Goldie will need VT to learn how to use her new vision.

Goldie's evals were done last month, so we won't be doing them tomorrow, but I will get the final results. I know where she stands on most of them already, so I don't expect any suprises there. Last year, everybody did all the evals at once and I wanted to cry by the time they left. Ugh.

I also spoke with the SC's supervisor last month at a meeting she happened to be at. So, I'm still suprised that she hasn't called to confirm tomorrow's meeting. I WILL be asking for a new SC after this, in writing. She is not equipped to help us through transition when Goldie turns 3. No way.

On a happy note, I told Swatcho she could make monkey bread in the morning for everyone. She has a recipe she's been dying to try.

Yuck, we had all the same problems with our service coordinator. It's such a hassle. Unfortunately, when we switched it wasn't any better. I hope you have better luck than we did!!
