[ - ] WWYD: We were doing cio with 6.5mo. Was going well but then she got sick. She's pretty much better but seems to still have plugged up nose and she's been waking every hour the past couple nights. DH thinks we need to resume CIO now, I think maybe we should wait. wwyd? 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

wait until baby is 100% better. really, when you're all stuffed up, you wake up to. How bad would it suck to wake up and have nobody to wipe your face or give you some water. And then have to cry and make yourself more stuffed....And I did CIO with 2 kids. All bets are off when they are sick though. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] If a 8th or 9th grader finishes typical HS curriculum, what do TT HS's offer to these kids for 10-12th grade? Just take more AP classes (or equivalent) or does the school allow kids to take classes from nearby colleges? 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Where do you get your information? Trig, pre-calculus and calculus are taught in most independent high school math programs. History and writing projects are very sophisticated (look at Fieldston's high school history offerings on their website). Some schools (Fieldston, maybe Brearley) are not offering AP courses any more because they can limit what a teacher does. [ Reply | More ]

Some do and some don't. There were some TT moms on here before who said they finished (and/or their friends) HS curriculum at 8th grade but the schools accommodated them. BTW, "typical" HS senior curriculum would include pre-calculus or AP Calculus (level A), physics, etc. [ Reply | More ]

You don't know what they're talking about. Obviously, they're not talking about exhausting all available courses offered by TT HS. But they do let you skip grades by subject (math, reading, science..). [ Reply | More ]

That's different from finishing a HS curriculum by 8th or 9th grade. Totally different. In that case, many public HS also have kids who do that. [ Reply | More ]

This question gets asked so often. It's hard IMO to get an approved school on your IEP. Often this is why people hire an attorney. The other reason people use and atty is to sue for reimbursement under FAPE if they are in a non-approved school. In that case, you must pay and then get reimbursed. Or, if you choose, just pay.

All the people I know at approved schools did hire lawyers, did get NPS (for non-public school) on their IEPs after no or some struggle, and then are done with lawyers basically forever, or until the kid no longer goes to that school. So it's definitely worth hiring the lawyer just so you do the application process right, do everything right, and then you are done for years and years. [ Reply | More ]

Here is a good list: In Manhattan/funded -- Reece, Parkside, Gateway, Churchill, Gillen Brewer, Herbert Birch, Learning Spring, Child School (Roos Isl.), Hawthorne Country Day. Unfunded -- Aaron, Rebecca, Stephen Gaynor, Ideal, Manhattan Childrens Center, West End Day. In outer boroughs funded -- Summit, Lowell, NYCLI (not sure if funded), League School, New York Institute for Special Education, Mary McDowell. Unfunded Gersh Academy. NJ (lots of NYC kids at these schools)-- Forum School, Community School, Alpine Learning Institute. Westchester -- Hallen School, Windward, Eagle Hill. LI Center for Speech and Language Disabilities. These schools all serve different populations. Some are for autism, some are for learning disabilities, some are for emotional/behavioral problems, some are for language processing issues. It is worth is to tour a lot of them, figure out what is most appropriate [ Reply | More ]

The only school we applied to was West End Day, per advice from David Salsberg (but it turns out ds is doing fine in public CTT). All the schools have their preferences about what kind of SN they like to work with, and those preferences can change from year to year. Really helps to have guidance from a professional who knows the schools [ Reply | More ]
