So even as we are in the process of finalizing difficult child's IEP, he was suspended yet again today for 2 days for flipping the bird to a substitute teacher. Penalties are doubled when it's a substitute....and he started Strattera last night in a last-ditch attempt to get mornings under control. The other morning he was humping (like a dog) my 11 year old and that was the last straw. My question today concerns the IEP. A fba was done, but Knight was only observed directly 3 times, once in Math, once in Science, and once in Phy Ed. From this they are drawing the conclusion that he is motivated by Power (did not pay any attention in Science class, merely read a book as the teacher lectured) and Attention (joking around, crawling on the floor, poking kids with pencils). For those of you that have had FBA's done during the IEP process, does this sound like enough observation to you? His goals on the proposed IEP are things like "will be able to identify 5 methods of appropriately obtaining peer attention." Holy Smokes! I'm sure he could identify that now, he just can't put any of it into practice. I guess I'm not signing it "as is." I wonder if I should try to tweak it myself or if now is the time to call in an advocate? I hate to delay implementing some sort of plan any longer, but the plan we've got seems rather canned to me. Advice? Thoughts?? Having a rough day even though it was a victory that he did qualify for the IEP in this school.
