IEP & Brain Gym

I spoke with J's teacher a couple days ago and this morning, I sent her the letter required to get things rolling for the school to have him tested so we can get him an IEP and hopefully into some OT. I'm sure this will be a long, drawn-out process, and I understand there are reams of paperwork involved. I'm not looking forward to it, but I'll do what I need to do to get things lined out for him. I had forgotten all the stuff he was diagnosed with: Asperger's (I hadn't forgotten that one), hypotonia, OCD, Sensory Integration Disorder, motor delay, and the neurologist wants him tested for dysgraphia and dyspraxia. Fun stuff.

Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All in Your HeadDisconnected Kids: The Groundbreaking Brain Balance Program for Children with Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, and Other Neurological DisordersIf you've been here all along, you know that I had planned to do another 12 weeks of the Brain Balance At-Home program over the summer. Turns out that we spent the whole summer just enjoying sleeping late and enjoying summer. My plan was that, depending on how the Brain Balance experiment went, we would try Brain Gym if necessary. I've heard great things about that program, as well, but I hadn't heard of it until after we'd started Brain Balance. And that's fine. I don't regret trying Brain Balance, and it may work great for someone else. I'm sure if I could get him in the program at a Center, we'd see great results, but that's not possible right now. Because we didn't see any results with the BB At-Home program, I'm going to go ahead and try the Brain Gym exercises for few months. I'm just waiting for the book to arrive.
