OK just got back from my 11 yr old's triennial IEP review. He's in middle school now, they redid all the assessments. his IQ is sky high lol, he's got the mental capacity to do anything. the big problems are spelling, organization, innattention, and his dysgraphia. the way they have it now, he has an alphasmart, but his work keeps getting deleted, and they only have 1 cable he can download his stuff from it on, in the library across campus from his classes. and the only time he can download and print is during instructional time. the sped teacher and the counselor have both been trying to get the district to give him a laptop to use because that's the only way he can really do what he needs to without messing anything else up, and trying to go to the library during the most chaotic library time would cause even more chaos and disorganization to a kid who's already struggling to manage. but the district keeps saying no. so they told ME to call the Sped Director and advocate for a laptop. so....how do i go about twisting arms to get him one? he's only in 6th grade and it's going to get a whole lot worse for him if he doesn't have one. any ideas?
