OK i'm going to have to make the new school redo difficult child 3's IEP...he'll be in the sped room for math, reading, writing and science. 4th grade. I'm not sure how many kids and teachers are in the class yet, and he'll be with the regular ed class the rest of the time. So far the main complaints have been that he doesnt do Any work, has to have someone right ontop of him constantly redirecting him to get anything out of him. He's flighty and doesnt pay a bit of attention to class. Homework is impossible. he's on the IEP for writing troubles, his handwriting is like a first graders still. When he's pushed or upset he gets ornery with other kids...bugging and pestering and trying to trip them and stuff. He does get violent with other kids occassionally if they call a name, he'll hit for instance. Honestly never known him to get that way with an adult but that's what the school is claiming now. He's very artistic and loves manipulatives...needs to move around a lot. Try and put him at a desk writing...and there's basically no chance of cooperation no matter what you threaten or promise. He's incredibly smart, but his memory stinks. Where he was before he had an aide anytime he was in the regular ed classroom except for gym and recess and lunch (tho he prolly should have had one then too since he still got bullied and gave it right back then. So, i'm open to suggestions on what to ask for, I have a feeling this school district is completely new at dealing with a kid like mine. they get simple ADHD and mild autism from what i hear.
