Extended school year denied
I had a meeting with Andy's teacher and therapists. I was asking if Andy was eligible to have an extended year, because he would get one if he was in a severely impaired program. They all felt he was meeting his goals and doesn't show regression during the two week breaks. I feel even with their data, he still would benefit from a longer school year due to his severity. For now, they will allow him to go to school through June, which is what they normally offer. He will attend therapy that we pay for in the summer. However, I feel it should be offered to him through school, but for now the answer is no.
