Today, Mr. G had his meeting through CPSE (Committee on Preschool Special Education), to determine what services he will receive through the school district once he starts preschool in the fall, as he will be transitioning out of the Early Intervention program. Going I to this meeting, I wasn't sure what to expect. EI services are strictly based on development, where CPSE services are based on a child's ability to function in a classroom setting as well as development. Overall, the eligibility criteria for CPSE is much stricter than EI.
Our school district has decided that Giovanni will receive Physical Therapy once a week, Occupational Therapy twice a week, and Special Ed services three times a week for 3 hours total. We are not sure what is going to happen with Speech Therapy yet, as they are not sure if they can provide him with what he needs. Giovanni's issues are more oral motor skills and feeding, so we need may need to hire a private therapist for that.
Overall I think we made at well, and I feel that Giovanni will continue to get the services that he needs to thrive.
He is such a cute little booger!!
