My son (age 12/Autism & ADHD) qualified for ESY this year. Our school district only offers a 1/2 day program for 4 weeks. We declined ESY so he would have an opportunity for exposure and interaction with non-disabled peers.But I got to thinking, what if I had requested and pushed for his participation in this camp *AS* his ESY, with goals focused on social skills and communication.I'm not sure how the school might have responded to this suggestion (I guess I'll be asking next year), but I'd love to hear examples from other parents who got creative with ESY services AND got "buy-in" from their IEP team!
