of what is written in his IEP? Last week, during a math assignment, difficult child was having problems with long division. (keep in mind he has an A in math)...He ran into a really hard problem and pulled out his calculator. A student yelled out "MRS X..."D" has a calculator" and the whole class started "OOOOOOOHHHH NOOOing" and Mrs X marched over to difficult child's desk and demanded for him to give her the calculator. Instead of handing it over right away, difficult child said very polietly, "Mrs. X, it is written in my IEP that I can use a calculaor and a multiplication chart if I need it". This set Mrs. X on fire...she said that he was rude and talked back to her. She also responded to him that she will call the principal. To which difficult child said, "Ok" (he was fine with her calling the principal). So, she confiscated the calculator. The next day I called the head of Special Education at our school and told her what had happened. She immediately remembered this "rule" in his IEP and said she would remind his teacher of it. I told her I would GREATLY appreciate it if Mrs. X would take the time to know what my sons IEP says. Her response to the spec. ed lady was "well, he hasn't used the calculator in months" ie: he doesn't really need it. Then she told her that difficult child was rude to her. So, I want to know...do you guys think your kids know what is in their IEP's/504's and how do you feel about your kids reminding the teacher of what is in it? I am so sick of the schools acting like our kids are prisioners and have no rights.
