In this school district. So, I went to the high school and they bring me to the CIP class to watch them teach a large group of CIP kids, first science then current events. OK fine, he has NEVER been in a class like that so are you trying to show me it wont work? THen they show me the sensory room. IT is a divided old conference room that has a swing in the middle (good) and some couches. NOT a sensory room. Just a relaxation/break room. So dumb. I am with the asst. principal (equivalent to mr. sp. ed. admin) and the psychologist who visited when we had the independent FBA meeting a few months ago.... and the sp ed coordinator. We went to see the Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) class and it is an open class at the end of a hall with a mainstream class on the other side of shelves. REALLY???? They showed me the art room and cooking room etc.... ok, those were fine, normal. He would need support. They said dont you think the noise in these halls would bother him? Well he is always dismissed before the gen population anyway. He has never been a kid who goes running thru halls screaming and yelling, Sp ed coordinator was making it look like he runs thru halls swearing at people. Never happened. Those things have only happened in his class at times of frustration, or in his private office space. What I asked repeatedly about was the functional work skill stuff. Well they have to learn skills here first, we have this ONE program where they learn to make note pads. ALL YEAR same thing over and over and over. idiots. I said well I had hoped before the IEP tomorrow we would see other sites but (and she was standing there) this was the only site arranged for. She said, well all the highschools are the same. NO they are NOT. I said, they were all built at different times and have classes in different spots and it would make a huge difference. they said there is one older building that has all enclosed rooms. WELL then, THAT is what we need to go see. I said, LOOK, he has NEVER learned in a group, why are you acting like this is a sudden change and making it seem like he all of a sudden is this different kid??? WHAT ideas (if you take SUN out of it) do you have for him? THIS IS WHAT I NEED FOR HIM.. so then they started talking about some joint sp ed gen ed activity programs after school that this being his home school, he could still participate in. ok. ONE idea... that seems to happen about three times per year. idiots. I feel like throwing up.
