My difficult child does have an IEP and he goes to a GA school. They are required to pass each of the five tests just like all the other students . Have any of you had to deal with this lately? My difficult child is just not a test taker. He understands the importance of these tests but he gets tired easily and he seems to give up. He is already worried about the test and is beginning to see himself as stupid. He works hard and makes good grades with only a few modifications but taking a test is not his cup of tea. Is there something I should ask the IEP team to put in his IEP to help with this test? They will not allow any accomodations except extra time. GA requires remedial help or tutoring after each test is failed. He has already failed the writing and had tutoring and has had the retest. We may have to do this with the other four test. Is this the way your state tests Special Education. kids? I am worried that if he doesn't pass these tests he will not be able to go to a college because of not recieving a reg. dipolma. He could get a certificate of participation or a Special Education dipolma, but if he has made good grades all through high school then it all comes down to this test and the grades don't mean anything. What do your children have to do in your state? Thanks for any help in advance.
