E's service dog Jewel is doing awesome at school, so good, in fact, that at a recent IEP meeting (in which the team met to discuss assessments needed prior to E's move to high school next year) a school rep made a comment I had to share.
"Mrs. W.," Mr. School Rep said. "I just wanted to say, Jewel is working out great. It's like she isn't even there."
Remembering the position school administrators had taken on Jewel last summer, it took all of my will power not to say: "We told you so." Instead I smiled and nodded, and said something civilized and professional like: "Glad to hear it."
