Today I am not a teacher.
4 1/2 years ago I became a mommy to the most beautiful little boy in the world. Due to complications during birth he was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. He is unable to walk, has difficulties with his right arm, and has speech delays. Despite all of that, he has been such a blessing in our lives and I would do anything for him. Last spring he started attending a special education preschool. I thought I have this. I am a teacher. My husband and I attended his case conference and set up his first ever IEP. Everyone kept telling me you have to fight for what you want. Even being a teacher I wasn’t quite sure what to expect or what I would be fighting for. How could these people not do exactly what was best for my son? We made some minor changes, but overall we were very happy and have been up until this point.
