I have gone to the archives to make some sense out of this in regards to Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). We have sent our letter requesting our IEE today. Well today(teacher has no idea we sent it) she called and told my husband difficult child doesn't have a disability due to the results of our last meeting(she ended by saying she thought it was behavioral while the others says its a result of her Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)) So first day back to school the teacher "sees" that my daughter is not going to have a good day by difficult child "eyes" no kidding. So she gave her something "fun" to do, the calendar, which takes some time and let her friend help her(the one she gets in trouble with and did before the break when they were unsupervised in the classroom during recess where they must miss recess until they earn their funny money back(supposed to be a reward for doing good, my difficult child lost her money and was in the hole because she was unable to complete her assignments in class)so the teacher says they carried on and talked during this activity she gave my daughter for "fun" to make her happy to be in school for 20-40 minutes and disturbed the class. Now I have no idea why she would let 2 children disturb the class for this long, however she is documenting it all in her my difficult child's book she is keeping on her. (before the break she documented everything my difficult child did or said or the need to be redirected on 15 to 30 minute intervals)The teacher calls my husband to tell him all of this. She also then discusses with the class about the rules of the school and now difficult child and her friend have been seperated to oppositite sides of the room but she said they were "talking" through this lecture, husband asked that they were actually talking across the room, well no the teacher said they were talking with their "EYES"!!! All I can say is @#$@$#@. Come one now. I see what is happening. The minute my difficult child was found not disabled (with her Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) diagnosis) the teacher lowered her 2 social studies reports by one letter grade each for being late, meantime difficult child had her funny money took away and was in the hole for not completing her social studies reports in class and ALSO was being kept in from recess for over 2 weeks for not completing her social studies report in class on time. We were told that she should work on writing assignments(she has problems with some written expression usually her opinions and thoughts) with her therapist she sees once or twice a month at night. So much for FAPE. They see no educational impact since she is still learning and lower grades do not mean she is not learning. She scores high all on testing and her standardized tests. So how do we prove she needs an IEP??? We are requesting for the IEE. Doesn't being removed from class(office a couple of times) her anxiety, her being kept in from recess, her inability to complete some written work at school count???? The teacher is not retaliating and yes this will cause behavior problems with difficult child on how she is approached. Now difficult child hates school, told her uncle she was going to puke today and not have to go to school, before the holidays she came home one day for throwing up(did she or did she just say it to come home?) she used to love to read but now hates it. I moved her from a more disciplined Catholic school and she wasn't happy. She is more happy here but its going down the tubes fast. husband is keeping this all in writing. I'm thinking he responds to the teacher in writing and cc's the principal. The principal is actually up and up but appears to be letting the teacher run the show. We need this IEP so something can be done to help my difficult child. The teacher asked husband for suggestions. The day before we requested the full evaluation she also asked me for suggestions. There is a care team, they mentioned they could meet but of course over the last few months they have not met, there are no suggestions. Now their behavior team is meeting in 2 weeks about my difficult child so now she is a behavior problem as she didn't meet their eligitability for an IEP. HELP!!!
