Back To School-Parents, ask about therapy schedules

Back to school may mean new teachers, new school, new therapists, and new schedules.  There seems to be a shortage of related service providers (occupational, physical and speech therapists) in many school districts.  Children might go weeks and months without therapy services unbeknownst to the parents.  Make sure your child is receiving all the therapies documented on their IEP by asking the teacher for a schedule of days and times they have their therapies.  By the second or third week of school you should kindly ask the teacher to write down the schedule.  Make sure it matches what is in the IEP.  If it doesn’t match, kindly ask when the child will be receiving their full schedule.
