|Oh, I am SO on your side...I'm in Canada and went to a parenting conference in May in another province and the school system was phenomenal!!!|
I spell things out to the teacher, write letters, make phone calls, send e-mail...if I could handle it, I'd home school but I have to work...I'm working on being a SAHM but it's gonna take some time.
What works? Find a professional - we took our daughter's therapist (she was dealing with other issues) to the school and they listened to her. Irked me but whatever it takes! ↑
|Hey Chrys, call the school at request a child study meeting. If requested, they have to accomodate you with this. My daughter is 9 yrs. old and I have had this study for the last two years at my daughters school. Through this child study, they can determine if you child needs an IEP (individual education plan) they can change her ciriculum or get her additional remediation in the subjects she struggles in. I have never had an IEP but by having this meeting every year, it reminds everyone that she does have a problem and this keeps her in the forefront of eveyone minds so she doesn't fall through the cracks. If you request this meeting, keep in mind that you will have about seven people from the school sitting in on this as well, the principal, ass't principal, spec. educ. teacher, guidance counselor, child's teachers and the school physcologist. Good luck. ↑|
