Talking We got the referral!

Thank goodness, it went really well. Jacob was his normal self, not having a really bad day, but also not one of his "abnormally good days". I had to do a little name dropping, I was talking with a lady while at my doctor's appt Tuesday afternoon and she gave me a name of "the guy" for parents with Special Ed kids in our school district, he's a professional advocate for Special Ed Laws. Anyhooo- they were trying to push me off (again) and I decided to drop this guy's name into the conversation- well the lady from the actual ISD offices was in there and when I said his name, she actually flinched. It was all I could do not to laugh out loud. Anyway, they quickly changed their tune and decided to go ahead with the referral. Guess it pays to be "in the know".

Hopefully this will get him up to par! I'm glad it went well, and that you just had to drop a name, and viola how their tune changed!

it's sad that you do have to resort to name dropping like that..
At least you got the referral and maybe now you'll be on track with the help!
