My 10 year old ds has an I.E.P that was just finalized about a month ago. I assumed everything was going to be so much better, but found out a few days ago, that the teacher, isnt' even aware that he has one. Nothing has been done, no changes made, no accomadations that we fought for for almost a year. We've called for a meeting with the school, but I was wondering if anyone has any advice about how we should approach it. The school seems to be so clueless about the law-this all seems so new to them. The principal actually sat and shook her head at the I.E.P meeting when they were reading his accomadations out loud. They still use paddles at this school, and even though we didn't give our permission for him to be disciplined with paddling, she still pulled it out and slammed it on her desk when he was sent to her (first time in life being sent to the principal). Sometimes I feel like I'm fighting a hopeless cause-I feel so small fighting a BIG system.
