She was mainstreamed last year. She has a receptive language disorder, and learning disabilities in reading and spelling (diagnosed privately at a neuropsychologist). Her IQ was 88, pretty much the same for verbal/performance. I think it's a little low for her, but she's certainly not an above average child intellectually. She gets confused, especially in learning about sentences and with reading and spelling, and is falling behind her peers. Last year the reading teacher was very easy, which is why we tried mainstreaming her. He babied her and all the kids. This year she says it's "too hard. Put me back in Learning Disability (LD)." I can do that, but is that best? Would she learn more in regular reading, even if she didn't do well? The Special Education kids are not working on the same things as the regular ed kids. I'm really not sure what to do and would appreciate feedback. She would only be in Learning Disability (LD) for reading and language. She can already access extra help before/after school and during study hall, but it doesn't seem to be enough, at least for reading.
