Eval Meetings Just Suck

How did the eval meeting go?

I learned nothing new.

I still have no idea what Joey can do, only how he compares to his peers on evals.

The good news is that he mostly tests at an average level for his age and grade.

The bad news is that these tests are administered and normed to non-disabled peers, so we have no idea how far above his grade level he can perform if given appropriate accommodations.

I have no idea what we are going to do with this information.

The other good news we got was that Mrs. H, our awesome teacher from the last school, is going to be split between the upper and lower elementary next year, so she will be working with Joey again. The bad news there is that they were supposed to hire somebody to be full-time in this school as a resource, and now they are splitting the resource between two schools, so that no one has Mrs. H to support them the whole day, as may be needed. But we'll have Mrs. H at our IEP on Monday, which rocks.

So, there was good, bad, ugly, and just useless. I hate eval meetings.
