I begin the process of getting an IEP for my soon to be autistic three year old in a couple of weeks. I already have researched and taken a class on special ed (I was going to school to be a teacher). I was asked to bring a letter briefly stating what I specifically wanted. For example: one on one instruction, ABA, PECS, ect. I was just wondering if anyone has anything beneficial to add or even any ideas from their past experience with the process. I already know he will be getting five days a week, six hours a day at a school. Now I want to make sure they put him in the autism specific classroom. He is non verbal and gets 16 hours a week ABA therapy including speech and OT. Any information or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
