IFSP and Transition Meeting

Logan had his IFSP yesterday and I can't believe that he is almost done with Birth-to-3. It's really sad to think that he is growing up so fast and the program has had such a positive impact on his development. I feel like his therapists genuinely care about him and I fear that I may feel very alone after he turns three. He will transition to our local school district and a representative attended the meeting, but I don't think the support with be the same. I am feeling that Dale and I will now have to step up and take charge of what happens from this point on, instead of a program taking care of us. Even though I am nervous about the change, I do feel ready to advocate for him and I am thankful for our strong support system of families going through exactly what we are going through.

I also am not ready to let him go...he's still my baby. At only about 30 inches tall, he is the size of most 18 month olds. I just want to keep him home with me! He's just way too little to go off to school!!

My Jack is almost half way there, so I feel your pain. Good luck with the transition. He sure is a cutie!

I know it is difficult to send our little guys out of the nest. And with Wyatt being our youngest, it seemed more sad. But in defense of the public school system and CESA7-They are great folks too, at least here in Hilbert it's all really good.And Wyatt loves his teachers and the bus,his friends and all that goes with being in school.

He will do great in school. I was so scared too, but it has done great things for both of my girls. It was also at that point that we picked up private therapy for our girls, so we still had that extra support ... which they sooo needed.
