I desperately need your advise.... My difficult child is in 6th grade and has had an IEP since 1st grade. He has received one hour each day of one on one in the Special Education class (explaining assignment, reteaching what ever the teachers told ISP teacher he wasn't getting, retaking test, taking tests). Now in middle school, he is in a collaborative English class but not Math. He has struggled all year in math. He only gets a C in the class because he does his homework but gets D's and F's on tests. SO here is the issue... Two years ago (4th grade) difficult child scored in the 20th percentile for math, reading and language. EVERY test since then (two times a year in Fall and Spring) he is declining! I just go the test results and he lost 11 points in math and is now in the 1 percentile, he gained 4 in reading but is now in the 3rd percentile, and he gained 16 in language and is in the 11th percentile. I emailed his Special Education teacher and told her I wanted him in collaborative English and math next year. It has been three days and I have not received a response. HELP...what else can I do. It is obvious to me my son stopped growing in the 4th grade but they are not suggesting anything. Can I do this without an advocate or do I have to spend the money? I am to the point of sheer desperation.... Since first grade I have paid for a tutor four times a week for an hour even over the summer. He has NO diagnosed learning dxs'. He qualified because.."Not learning up to his full potential". I guess that means IQ (98) compared to grades???
