I keep ready in many of the posts that others have been successful in getting OT through the schools? We live in Michigan and the school is aware of my daughter Maddyn's sensory issues, however, I was told that they can not provide OT for sensory issues? I wonder if anyone knows if this varries from state to state or from district to district? I would love any resources that you may be able to provide. She was just tested for a learning disability and we will find out the results when we return to school after break. The next step will most likely be an IEP (individual education plan). If anyone has any advice about IEP's I would love it. I want to make sure that when I go into the meeting, I am armed with as much information as I can. I also wanted to know that if OT is placed in the IEP, if the school has to provide it or if we will have to get a 504 plan for that? Thank you so much for all of your time and support! This is an amazing site and I am so grateful for having found it!!! Have a wonderful and safe New Year!!!
