Hi all! I hope this message finds you all having a better day than I've been having so far. Here's what's going on: this morning I was on my way to a team meeting to discuss a child's progress when a coworker (preschool teacher/EC Coordinator) came up to talk to me about the way she wants to put kids together for group time. Now, this has been a struggle for a while--she insists that I see every child in her room since that's "the way it's always been done by every other therapist she's ever worked with." However: there are some students that do not have SLP services written into their IEPs. I am not required to see them, but have been for a while because of being new(er) to this profession and this district and trying to get my feet under me and figure out how to go about things. She and I have also had a rocky history due to personality clashes and my being the new kid on the block. So this morning I finally put my foot down and told her that I will no longer be seeing the kids that don't have SLP on their IEPs...as you can imagine, this set off quite the negative reaction in her! She got all huffy and told me-again-that this was the way things had always been done. I responded that I understood that, but things needed to change because seeing the non-SLP kids was taking much-needed time away from the kids that do require SLP services. I also told her that the PT and OT only serve those kids who have that service written in their IEPs, not every child in the room. I am the only one she requires this of. She became even huffier and told me that "I just didn't understand" and walked away. What else can I do to help this situation? I tried to remain as calm as I could and explain my thinking (and the law!) to her, but she didn't want to listen and ended up walking away before I felt the conversation should have been over.
