Hi everybody. I'm new to this board and this is my first post. My son is 6 years old and in kindergarten. He has an IEP and is in a general education classroom. I know that by law a teacher does not have to read a student's IEP, which I think is ridiculous. He has a personal aide but she seems unfamiliar with his IEP, too. I am wondering why teachers don't want to read a student's IEP? How can they know what's right for the student if they don't read the IEP? Wouldn't reading the IEP and becoming familiar with the student's needs and goals help the teacher as well as the student? It drives me crazy. I feel like I am always "educating" them about my son's issues because they don't seem to "get it". And I also feel like they don't appreciate me "educating" them. But unless they know his diagnosis and how to work with that diagnosis, how can he have a successful school year? What good is an IEP if the teacher and aide are unfamiliar with its contents? His year so far has had its ups and downs but I feel it could be so much better if they knew the things that I know. It's so frustrating. Any thoughts?
