Payton's 1st IEP

Today we had Payton's IEP (Individualized Educational Plan) meeting with the county school officials. For those of you not familiar, kids with special needs start school through the public school system the fall after they turn two years old. For Payton, that is this fall. Yikes. The IEP meeting we had today was to set goals for her and to determine the program in which she would be enrolled.

We found out that starting the first week of September, she will attend school at a local elementary school two days a week. In addition to that, her teacher will visit us at home for an additional 45 minutes. They will bus her or we can drop off and pick up. Putting my two year old baby on a bus is a very scary thing!


  1. Thanks for stopping by our blog. Wow! School this fall already? Time sure flies. Natasha will be 1 this September and won't be attending school until 3 but I'm not ready for her to grow up. =( We're working on crawling and it's so precious.


  2. Found your blog through Pinwheels. I remember putting our son Joe on a bus at 2 1/2 --we drove behind the bus on the first day. The bus ride turned out to be his favorite thing about going to school and I think it encouraged independence. Wow, was it tough on us!

    Mind if I link to your blog?


  3. I can totally picture her with a little backpack climbing the stairs of a bus. So cute.

  4. Payton totally has this bus thing... I could see her too. Her cute little wave in the window.
