  1. Hello, I have a 13 year old daughter with Down syndrome and her triennial IEP meeting is coming up. These are always stressful as I never seem to advocate enough for her... Anyway, she is currently on a life skills curriculum which I am mostly ok with, I just want to be sure that I am doing the right thing for her. She's had speech in her IEP throughout elementary and now middle school but is still has a limited vocabulary and is not always understood by others. She can write 3-4 letters of her name legibly and can write most her her numbers 1-10, her 5 and 9 are always backwards and she can't seem to get it to click how to turn them around. I read on another post on here that someone was asking how to get the school to teach her daughter how to read and the response mentioned to have her evaluated to prove she is able to learn to read....what kind of evaluation will let us know if Megan is capable of learning to read?? She has no interest in it, she recognizes her name, a few of her classmates names and maybe 5 sight words. I just want to know what she is capable of so we can concentrate on getting her the help to be great at what she is able to do, and not frustrate her by trying to push her to do something she isn't capable of. I hope all this jibberish makes sense. I want to help her and always feel at a loss on how to.
