We had difficult child's IEP meeting after school today. We did not complete it because two of the people we really wanted there had to leave early. It was a frustrating meeting. I know I posted about something similar last year. They are saying they cannot put in his IEP that he needs indvidual instruction (1:1) because our district doesn't allow this. I thought they couldn't do that if that is what he needs. He is reading at a kindergarten level and needs a direct program phonetic based. He also needs a replaced curriculum for math. The way I'm hearing it they are saying they won't have the staff so they can't put it in the IEP. Can they do that? Also we want to redo his BIP. He has had 5 1/2 days worth of suspensions this year and basically it is for things that are part of his disability. Any suggestions on wording or on alternatives to suspension. In school suspension is one idea I have. Sorry I know this is sort of rambling-it was a frustrating meeting.
