Sean Update

I heard from Sean's counselor today. He received and read through all of the report paperwork from the Psychologist who tested Sean and we have a 504/IEP meeting on December 2nd at 7:30AM. It was to have been just a 504 meeting, but the psychologist believes he needs an IEP to make sure he makes it through high school in a way that serves his best interest. Also in his best interest, we will be switching some classes around at the semester break to make sure he has access to some resource teachers that he doesn't have access to now. Hopefully this will help him have a successful high school experience that leads to graduation!!!

More Sean stuff...

Ok, we realized that Sean had an mri in the hospital, toward the end just as he was waking up. They even took extra shots to see if there were any indices of stroke. Dr. Gerhaety (the neurologist from there) said nothing in the MRI indicated anything like brain injury and that instead he needs to be evaluated by an occupational therapist to decide if there has been brain injury. So she has a call into one, and they should be getting back to me. So it looks like h may not have to have one again which rocks because they are scary. He did have an OT work with him after the surgery, but not to do testing "looking for brain injury".
