Original thread title: Recommended vs. Included in IEP Quick question for the experts here. difficult child's school is recommending that he participate in summer school activities for his reading. This is something that we have to pay for him to attend. While I don't mind paying for it, I am curious why this has not been included in his IEP? I know that I have questioned it in the past (as they have recommended it for the past couple of years) but I do not recall their answers. In all honesty, it was not a battle I wanted to fight due to other more important IEP fights. What do you guys think? If the school is recommending he participate because of a discrepancy in his reading, should it be part of his IEP? Or, should I just leave it alone and pay for it myself? Thanks!
