I'll ask ya'lls opinion. They have a well defined plan. He'd start the day at 8am in the mainstream room for group time, followed by math, his strong subject, with para support. At 9, he would go to SpEd room, with the SpEd teacher he is with now. At 10, he would go to specials, again, with para support. At 10:45, he would go to SpEd Group with one of the other SpEd teachers in the building (group of 3-4 kids). At 11:30, he'd go to lunch, followed by recess, and dismiss at noon. Everyone agrees he's about at a kindergarten level developmentally. He is able to read 40 site words now (compared to 5 a year ago), he's about on level with math. He is doing very little reversal in his writing, etc. The goals they have for him for next year are: 1. Read 80 site words by May 2011 2. Maintain reading comprehension levels as reading levels increase 3. Increase written expression skills by independantly kid writing 2 sentences with 90% acccuracy on capitalization, punctuation, and spelling of known site words. 4. Meet the following math objectives by 2011: 4a. add a mixture of coins to $1 4b. identify and write fractions 4c. Time to the minute 4d. add double digit sums involving regrouping 4e. multiply 0-5 and 10 5. Recognize times of escalating behavior and reduce number of behavior related incidences which require removal from the classroom to less than 2 times per week as measure by SWIS data by May 2011 with trimester reports Occupational Therapist (OT) goals 6. Improve written communication by writing a 10 word passage with correct formation, line adherence, spacing, etc. 7. Participate in sensory motor activities with no behavioral over-reaction and then participate in classroom activity appropriately for 10 minutes by may 2011 8. Use keyboard to type 10 word passage with no more than 2 errors in 4 minutes As of late February this year, he was moved to entirely self contained classroom with SpEd. As of appx April 21, his magic switch "flipped" and we've no issues at school to speak of since then. At least that is what they are reporting. So, what ya'll think?
