I don't have my initial meeting with the school about Odin until next week. But the guidance counselor told me today that I had to be prepared that the accommodation offered might be for him to drop out of his accelerated/honors classes and take "general ed" classes instead. I told her that the problem for Odin isn't the content of his classes but the amount of homework. (His IQ is around 140 unless you figure in his processing speed, which is impaired.) She said the general ed classes give less homework, not just less difficult material, and the teachers of the honors classes might argue he should be there rather than be inconveniencing them by receiving the accommodations recommended by his neuropsychologist (untimed tests and fewer homework problems, e.g.). Odin is friendly with the kids in the accelerated classes and I think would find it quite discouraging (even depressing and isolating) to be moved to the general ed classes. He is definitely capable of understanding and assimilating the material in the more advanced classes -- just not, at this stage, of (a) staying awake in the afternoon and (b) routinely finishing (or necessarily starting) his homework. I can't afford a professional advocate and am afraid of being railroaded, since it'll be just me against a committee of two teachers, two guidance counselors, and an administrator. Can anyone suggest good arguments I can use without coming off as unrealistic, uncooperative, or ungrateful? Thanks in advance!
