easy child 2's evaluation from school came back that she doesn't qualify for the IEP. I guess I should have waited to make that request a little later into the year and let her teachers see her struggle more. *** She's been in Title 1 reading since she started school, and reads at the 3rd grade level. She's in 6th grade and has no accomodations to help her with homework. They are no longer "learning to read"; she is now expected to "read to learn". And she can't. *** Her core grades are beginning to suffer. She's geting routine D's and F's because she just doesn't get the material. She can bring home a worksheet and the text book, and the answers can be the bolded title headings of each section, and she will miss them every time. She just isn't getting it. *** I fought her mother and finally have her in tutoring 2 nights a week, but its not enough. *** Will a 504 plan be of any help? Can the IEP be appealed? *** She's a sweet kid, but I am afraid this will be disastrous for her - she is starting to hide things again, forging names on failed work; has little self-esteem and seeks acceptance wherever she can find it - and as Marg so lightly put it, she has "round heels" already....I'm really afraid for her future.
