So, I went to the school & read the funding application. It isn’t anything I haven’t seen before & not nearly as traumatic as I was dreading. In fact, Nathan scored higher on his language skills than I was expecting 3.11 months (I was thinking 3.4), so that was a really nice surprise. He’s booked in to have SLP every day he is at school for 20 minutes, so hopefully we continue to see nice gains there.
I spent quite a bit of time talking to the resource teacher, just about Nathan and what kinds of strategies we find work well with him. She is so kind and I am positive we are going to have a great school year.
We should hear back by mid-October if the application was successful and whether or not it is a single year or multi-year award. The school feels that a 1/2 time aide will not be enough in Grade 1, so we may look at re-applying next year anyway. I guess now we wait on pins & needles for the provincial body to decide. (And you know much much I love to wait)
