Mar 15, 2012: IEP for JaydenJayden’s teaching team have been awesome! They took the time to sit down and write Jayden’s IEP so it really reflects where he is and will help advocate for Jayden to attend Laremont in the summer. Laremont School serves students age 3 to 22 exhibiting severe to profound cognitive disabilities and/or multiple disabilities. Laremont presents an educational option for students whose need for support services is so extensive that it can best be delivered at a centralized site.
So it’s official, Jayden is in Kindergarten! We are so excited for him and this upcoming year. We have heard nothing but great things about his teacher, Ms. Williams, so much so, we were excited to stay in Waukegan School district. He is in a self-contained special ed., which means there are only kids with IEP’s (or special needs) in his classroom. He has 10 students in his class, compared to 28 in a normal ed room-half day. He has a fantastic team of teachers and therapists working with him and they even had a meeting with me already to talk about what is BEST for Jayden (not free and appropriate). They are willing to try new things and work with him using his learning language and temperament, which is such a relief!
