A quick follow up to my post from the other day. We had a meeting with the rec center on Friday and everything went great. There is a special needs specialist that works with all of the Salt Lake County rec centers. She was there and three people from the local center. They were very accommodating and the kids will be staying in the class they were in originally. Long story short…kids with disabilities have every right to be in the same classes as kids without. They also have the right to an assistant (e.g.. a parent) in the water with them if necessary.
So the kids will be happy, I will be happy, and Christi will be happy (as long as I learned my lesson and will be less vociferous in the event that a similar situation arises in the future:).
