So I just ordered the book. Last year was the 1st year difficult child really fell thru the cracks. He had a really unorganized and overwhelmed teacher who was more interested in his true passion of acting and modeling. husband and I have always been proactive and have a good repore with difficult child's teachers and the school district itself. difficult child was denied an IEP based on his state testing scores and in house testing they did at the end of last year beginning of this year. We found this out on Thursday. OH HE** TO THE NO !!! We called and emergency meeting and husband and I meet with teacher, principal, and School Pyschologist on Tuesday morning. We have argued with the school psychiatric a few times now. I have never met her in person but she sounds about 12 and seems to read from a manual while speaking with husband or myself. I am going to list some of difficult child's issues/difficulties and I am hoping for some advice and input I can take to the meeting with me. I have started a list of goals and responsibilities but I really could use some input. difficult child definetly has comprehension issues ~ School says no just lazy and rushes Misses key information ~ again school just lazy and rushes Major issues with word definitions ~ example cold is to hot as morning is to night ~ difficult child may put cold is to plate or cup or something totally irrelavant ... Becomes very frustrated and will write anything down just to be done INCREDIBLY resistant to any help at home. Once his homework is done IT'S DONE !!! He doesn't give two hoots that more that half of it is wrong difficult child is very well behaved and well liked at school. He has many friends and the staff really like him and compliment what a nice and polite kid he is. He just won an award at school last week for being respectful... I have been told our school district is so tough to get an IEP approved. Any thoughts or suggestions will be so appreciated. Thanks !!!
