Hi, Sharon. My name is also Sharon and I read your response to Cindy and I wasn't sure how to contact you, so I hope you'll get this. I just wish my son's story sounded as good as your son's seems to be as far as his education and the school's and teachers' cooperation with you goes. Everything you said sounds so familiar, that's what they tell us, but something gets lost in the translation when it comes down to the actual tasks it seems. I feel like a complete idiot when I deal with his school. They talk the talk, but only a handful walk the walk. I already told a little bit of our story on another site, I don't know if you've read it. But I was hoping that you might get this and reply via the message board or my e-mail. I've always heard of "parent advocacy" but who are they? We have a director of special education, I guess you call her, but she works for the state, not our child. You can tell it's all about money with her. We tried regular ed kindergarten and it didn't work out at all, not because Jordan couldn't keep up so much as the teacher's attitude. So we were "forced" into special ed for him. He has a pretty good teacher I guess, but I was hoping for more. I'd really like to hear your story. Thanks. Sharon
