In the past, we have had to fight for services for difficult child...how much he gets, he hardly got enough, etc. This year he started a new school and its small. Probably 200 students? Well, they have the regular teacher and then she has a Special Education teacher who is in there all the time. ALL the time....she has been assigned to this classroom permenantly. They have put all of the kids who get services on one side of the room and all the kids who don't get svs on the other. The Special Education teacher has her desk about 2 feet from difficult children. So she watches his every move. In his words, she "nags" him to death. We have never had services that were so ummm attentive? to put it nicely. difficult child is begging to be taken off an IEP. The Special Education lady of coarse does not want this. she said that may be setting him up to fail. I told him that he has to prove he doesn't need it anymore. Which I think he does still need it, but I feel like he is in full blown Special Education and not like the past 4 years where he was in a regular setting and just got help maybe 1-2 times a day. His IEP says he is to be in the least restrictive enviornment. Well...is this least restrictive? having the Special Education teacher sit beside you all day and bug the snot out of you? Also, during math and reading, the Special Education teacher takes all of the Special Education kids out of the room and into another room for their lessons. what do you all think about this? im not sure how or if to approach the situation.
