Hello All, It is a relief to have finally found a "soft place" to land. Bless you all. difficult child suspended for talking back to teachers. No FBA in place. On stay-put IEP with no measurable goals and no mention of behavior. Last school year was year from you know where. Multiple referrals, suspensions, detentions, and a criminal assault charge that was dismissed. Battled with SD in IEP meetings for a total of almost 16 hrs. to pull together IEP that passed the sniff test. Stalled on self-contained requirement imposed by SD. I refused to sign the IEP unless the self-contained required was removed. SD refused to remove the requirement. Went on stay-put. SD failed difficult child but gave conditional pass upon my request. At beginning of current term, I fought for and got the requested accommodations and supports in the "stalled" IEP. difficult child in all co-taught classes. Grades went from c's, d's and f's last year to a's, b's, and c's this year. Requested FBA May 2006. Psychologist collected data for FBA this year, but found that difficult child was on task most of the time. Teachers disagreed saying that behaviors occurred when psy. wasn't observing. Psy. determined no need for FBA. What can I do to safeguard my difficult child in this situation? IEP meeting in a couple of weeks. Help, please!
