SCHOOL NOT COMPLIANT WITH IEP, BUT I FEAR RETALIATION

I’m having trouble with my son’s school cooperating with his iep and special needs. I’ve got my ducks in a row, and am ready to throw the (law) book at them. My only concern is that the school isn’t actually our school district. I chose to send him there because it’s actually closer to our home, and i know the school because I went there. I wrote a letter to the school board years ago and they accepted him. If I made them angry, or ask them țo provide services they don’t want to, can they revoke or remove him? I don’t want my son to move schools now, he’d been there for six years.

OK TO SHARE SPEECH TIME BETWEEN TWO STUDENTS?

Can a speech pathologist and a resource teacher work together with 2 students at the same time (one does not receive resource) for a 30 minute block and that count as 30 minutes of speech and 30 minutes of resource?

JG
08/19/2015 4:27 pm

Regarding sharing the time between two students, this is okay as long as neither student’s IEP specifies otherwise.

On a side note… IDEA requires that the IEP list the frequency and duration of services, but does not actually require that the grouping size be listed (some states may). This is one of the greatest failings of the IEP form, in my opinion. Parents often assume a service is one-on-one when, more often than not, it’s not.

Regarding the provider time overlapping, I’m not 100% sure. If one of the services was listed as a consultation to the other provider, then it might be okay. But if both are listed as direct services to the student, my hunch is that it’s not okay. I would suggest contacting your state Dept of Ed to be sure.

NEED CONTINUING ED FOR 19 YR OLD WITH ASPERGERS

My grandson has adhd bi polar and was told he has hi functioning aspergers. He is now 19 finished high school and wants to learn to be a mechanic and I don’t know where to find a school or tech school to help him. he is on disability. mainly looking for direction. we moved from PA a year ago and He needs to find his way.

JG
08/19/2015 3:35 pm

Rebecca –

I would suggest that your grandson try your state’s vocational rehabilitation (VR) agency.

VR agencies help individuals with disabilities get ready for and obtain employment. They help people with all types of disabilities (but may prioritize services based on need), and most services are free.

The VR agency will help develop a plan for employment that includes employment-related goals and the services they will provide to help meet those goals. Helping individuals choose and pay for college/training is right in their wheelhouse!

They can also help individuals connect with other services and benefits.

If your grandson receives SSI and/or SSDI, he is also eligible to participate in the “Ticket to Work” program.

JG
08/19/2015 3:34 pm

This program has a similar goal of helping individuals with disabilities get ready for and obtain employment. Through Ticket to Work, individuals work with an authorized service provider towards employment-related goals.

In my experience, the VR agency is the best place to start. VR agencies are authorized Ticket to Work service provides, plus they often offer more robust services than other providers. And you can always change your service provider if they are not working out.

Here’s a list of VR agencies by state: http://www.fda.gov/downloads/AboutFDA/WorkingatFDA/UCM277757.pdf.

Here’s a general overview of VR agencies: https://www.communityinclusion.org/pdf/to19.pdf.

SCHOOL WONT LET MY GRANDSON GO TO THIRD GRADE BECAUSE OF BEHAVIOR

My grandson has been diagnosis with PTSD, depression, ADHD, ODD and anxiety. He is on a 504 plan. We were just told that they are going to let him go to the library twice a week for 30 minutes each time. He can get time add if he behaves at the library with ateacher. He has been on medication and seeing a conselor 5 times week. They will not give him a chance in school to see if his behavior is better. They tell tell us t&at behavior comes before education. My grandson is very smart does get good grades. We welcome any advice. Thank you.

JG
08/19/2015 4:56 pm

Under Section 504, your grandson is entitled to a free appropriate public education (FAPE). If his disability is impacting his ability to receive FAPE, the school needs to provide appropriate supports to remedy that.

I suggest asking the school to complete a functional behavioral assessment (FBA). The FBA is a process that identifies the cause of behaviors and the interventions that will help reduce or prevent them. The FBA process and resulting Behavior Intervention Plan should be updated if interventions prove ineffective or new behaviors arise.

If the level of supports/services the school is willing to offer through the 504 plan proves inadequate to meet his needs, you can request an evaluation for special education eligibility.

Chuck
08/19/2015 12:28 pm

This appears to be a violation of Section 504 & the Americans with Disabilities Act. The district should have a 504 coordinator who may be able to help get appropriate services provided. If not, a complaint could be made to the Office of Civil Rights who enforce Section 504.

CAN’T GET CERTIFIED TEACHER

My child will be attending ESE Pre K. She has an IEP from last year, but I have found out that she is going to have a SUB and not a certified teacher. We are in the State of Florida which I think only requires the sub to take a few hours of training. What are my rights as a parent to get her a teacher?

Lorraine –

There are certainly some advocates out there that work for free or, at the very least, on a sliding scale. Your local parent center is a good place to start looking: http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/.

Some parent centers have advocates on staff that can work directly with you. Others offer training to advocates that includes required pro bono work. Yet others might simply keep a list of advocates (and attorneys) who have worked pro bono in the past, or can point you to other organizations in your state that may be able to help.

School allowed to dismiss us because they feel I am not happy with school? Can they make a decision on where my son goes without a full party meeting?

MUST A SPECIAL ED TEACHER (CALIF) HAVE CERTIFICATION BEFORE BEING ALLOWED TO TEACH?

I am in California and my child’s school just told me that there is a new Special Ed teacher and that “she holds a multiple subject teaching credential, and will be working on her special education credential.” Shouldn’t the teacher actually have completed a Spec. Ed certification and not be”in the process of/working on” obtaining the certification? I thought that this role needs to be undertaken by someone who is “highly qualified”.

Chuck
08/19/2015 12:32 pm

The CA dept. of Education would have to answer this. It is not uncommon for states to allow certified teachers to have a special ed “permit” while they complete training fort this certificate.

SON DIAGNOSED WITH ASPERGERS HAS IEP – NOT GETTING WHAT HE NEEDS OR SHOULD BE GETTING

My son diagnosed with Aspergers has an IEP, but feel he is not getting what he needs, or what he should be getting. He has always had problems in Math and for the longest time it was placed on me, the parent, to go out and pay Sylvan Learning for tutoring (elementary/middle school). Once he entered High school it only got worse and couldnt afford Sylvan. The school system offered tutoring after school but by that time of the day he was wasted and did nothing for him. Feel there is a better way but feel school system wont offer unless threatened…

JG
08/17/2015 7:22 pm

Brian –

When was your son was last evaluated? If you ask the school to change the IEP, you’re more likely to be successful if you have evidence to back up your request. Evaluations are often the best evidence. A well-conducted evaluation will identify how your son is doing now and clarifying what his needs are.

You can ask that the school evaluate him in any area that you feel they are not wholly addressing. Or you could arrange an independent evaluation for your son. With evaluation results in hand, you will in a better place to ask for IEP changes.

CURRENT 504 PLAN LOST, SCHOOL USES OLD PLAN

Last September I had my son’s 504 meeting. The counselor took the notes and changes on the previous year’s 504. She said that she would re-type it and send it to me. My mistake, I agreed. I sent 3 emails to her requesting the 504 with no response. My son is starts high school this week. I met with the high school counselor to walk the building and requested a copy of he 504. She only had his 7th grade 504 and the 8th grade 504 would be coming. Today I received the high school counselor forwarded the copy from the middle school counselor. She sent the 7th grade 504 again, I am beginning to believe the most recent 504 has been lost. Where should I go from here?

JG
08/17/2015 3:38 pm

Patty –

You could ask the counselor one last time for the Plan developed at the last meeting. If it doesn’t appear, all you really can do is ask for a new one to be developed.

I would suggest that you request that the 504 Team meet again asap, to develop a Plan for the 8th grade. Ask that both the counselor from the middle school (who presumably knows your son best) and the high school (who knows the program there best) participate. And ask them to photo copy the notes/draft Plan before you leave the meeting!

The 7th grade Plan should suffice until the new plan is developed.

SCHOOL DID NOT COMPLY WITH SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT

Prior to a due process hearing, the school system and parents entered into a settlement agreement. The hearing was subsequently dismissed. The settlement agreement, among other things indicated that the student would enter (return) during the 2014-2015 school as a sophomore and then the 2015-2016 school year as a Junior. The school placed the student in the 9th grade for the 2015-2016 school year, and subsequently placed the student back in 9th grade (lowering the standards). They retained the student back 2 years – FYI – The student has an average IQ, SLD/dyslexia.

JG
08/19/2015 2:45 pm

MD –

In some states, the state Dept of Education or special education hearing officers will review compliance with a settlement agreement. I would suggest contacting the agency that conducts hearings in your state to inquire about this.

Otherwise, settlement agreements are considered a contract and compliance can be reviewed in state or federal court.

WHICH IS THE ‘STAY PUT’ PLACEMENT?

if a district proposes a placement during the annual review (which took place in the summer) and we (the parents) do not agree does the “stay put” would the last placement be the summer placement. New York

JG
08/17/2015 3:19 pm

The stay put placement (and services) is generally the one described in the last agreed-upon IEP.

I’m not sure what you mean by “summer placement.” If you mean extended school year (ESY) services (that was intended to last during the summer or other school break), this would be the stay put service in a dispute that involves ESY.

If you mean a placement that was intended to last beyond the summer into the school year, that would be the stay put placement.

Note that stay put protections vary by state. Some states read this right leniently, and parents have stay put protections during ANY special ed dispute. Other states (and it looks like this includes NY) apply the right only if mediation or a due process hearing have been requested.

SCHOOL REFUSED TO FOLLOW MEDICAL HEALTH PLAN AND KICKED MY CHILD OUT OF SCHOOL

The school refused to remove air fresheners out of classrooms which triggers asthma attacks with several students. My child choked up, had difficulty breathing, had to use rescue inhaler when he entered a classroom that used a plugin or aerosol sprays. Principal said he would take care of it, but did not. Does the school have the right to do this? To discriminate against him by not following health plan even if the child was out of district? School accepted child as full time student, however did not follow health plan. Isn’t there a state law which prohibits the use of air fresheners in public schools? Don’t they know they’re toxic and cause many health issues?

JG
08/14/2015 4:06 pm

Both the ADA and Section protect students with disabilities from discrimination. The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) at the federal Dept of Education is charged with enforcing these laws.

OCR maintains a complaint process that you may elect to use. You can read about the complaint process, and how to file a complaint, here: http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/qa-complaints.html.

Normally I would suggest trying further to resolve this with the school, but it sounds like you may need to involve an outside party to work this through.

SON WITH AUTISM HAS BEHAVIOR ISSUES – HOW CAN WE GET A ONE ON ONE AIDE?

My wife and I have a 10 year old child who is autistic. He is often non-compliant and aggressive, especially when things are asked of him. He is in a functional skills classroom. During the first half of last year, there were six kids in his class and he did well. The last half of the year, the class size doubled and his behavior became very negative and he hit and scratched several students and teachers. We requested one on one with in aid, but this request was denied. We are fearful that the school district is going to propose sending him home and sending a teacher by the house a couple of hours every day in order to discharge their educational obligations. Can they do this? Any thoughts on how we should proceed?

JG
08/14/2015 5:03 pm

When was your son last evaluated? An aide would be a major change to his program, and such changes should be backed up by evidence. Evaluation is one of the best ways to create that evidence.

I would suggest either requesting an evaluation from the school or arranging for an independent evaluation. You mention behavior and the “fit” of his classroom as problem areas, so you would want these evaluation to target these. You may also want to ask that your child’s communication skills be assessed (including the potential use of AAC/AT), as problem behavior often results from lack of means to communicate.

With evaluation results in hand, it’s much easier to make the case for what your son needs, be it an aide or some other support.

HOW TO COVER LANGUAGE, COMMUNICATION, ADAPTIVE BEHAVIOR IN IEP?

Many needs…Moved from out of state and now my son will be in high school. They removed the speech and language from his iep in the middle school cause they said the teachers are responsible. But he has language and communication issues. Can I ask for them to give him services? Also, I believe he qualifies for adaptive behavior on his iep, and I’m concerned how I go about this. I have read IDEA for our state, and there is a lot of information. I was just wanting the opinion of you all. Thanks.

JG
08/14/2015 3:18 pm

When considering a significant change to the IEP, there should always be supporting data to back it up. School work, progress reports, and similar info is helpful, but evaluations are key – especially in areas that have not been assessed in a while, or have never been assessed.

The evaluation will document the need for the service, as well as pinpoint the specific areas of concern that should be worked on.

So I would suggest asking the school to evaluate these two areas (and any others you may be concerned about – have any transition-related assessments been conducted yet?).

You can also have your son assessed independently, but I like to give the school the first chance (and reserve my right to publicly funded independent evaluations).

Desiree
08/19/2015 10:40 am

The only report or documentation was a Fuch and Fuchs assessment, data graphs, and nothing from the speech and language teacher showing what she did with him. She told me “the previously provided don’t follow the iowa approach to providing receptive and expressive language services in the secondary school program. I haven’t found evidence for that yet. He hasn’t been assessed for at least 5 years on language.
Thanks for replying I appreciate it.

JG
08/19/2015 2:06 pm

Desiree –

I would definitely suggest you ask the school to evaluate. It’s not a problem if you or the school cannot find information on what speech services looked like in the past – the evaluation results will focus on where he is now and what needs to be done going forward.

I also want to stress the importance of transition-related assessments!! IDEA requires that transition needs are considered beginning at age 16 (many states say earlier). And transition goals and services should be based on transition assessments! An adaptive behavior assessment could be one piece of this.

See here for more info: http://www.nsttac.org/sites/default/files/assets/pdf/NSTTAC-DCDT_Fact_Sheets/AgeAppropriateTransitionAssessment.pdf

Good luck!

SCHOOL SAYS IEP IS DISTRICT’S LEGAL DOCUMENT, NOT PARENTS’

At the last IEP meeting, the district’s attorney and special education director told me that it was apparent that I didn’t understand the IEP was the district’s legal document. To which I responded, so what does that mean? We (school personnel) decide what goes into the document, not the parent. Is this true?

Chuck
08/14/2015 5:42 pm

Federal rules make it clear that parent is part of team that decides what goes into IEP. The parent training & information center in your state should be able to assist you.

JG
08/14/2015 2:50 pm

Colleen –

This is absolutely not true!! IDEA is built on parent participation, plain and simple.

The IEP is developed by (and placement determined by) the IEP Team (see 34 CFR § 300.320 & 300.324). And parents are members of the IEP Team (34 CFR § 300.321, 300.322, & 300.327). Doug C. v. Hawaii, a recent case, reaffirmed that parent participation is a priority.

Does your state offer IEP facilitation? This process is a good remedy for anyone who believes in this line of thinking. You could also print out the applicable regulations and send it to the offending parties!

WITHDRAWING FROM SPECIAL ED?

Can an 18 year old in the District of Columbia withdraw from special education services?

JG
08/14/2015 2:00 pm

Michele-

Are you asking if the 18 year old can withdraw themselves? The answer is yes, in most cases.

Under IDEA, a parent/guardian may revoke consent for special education at any time [34 CFR § 300.300(b)(4)].

Also under IDEA, all procedural rights and protections transfer from the parent/guardian to the student upon the age of majority [34 CFR § 300.502]. In D.C. (and most states), the age of majority is 18. So a student would be able to withdraw themselves from special education at that time.

An exception to this is where the parent or another individual is court-ordered to make decisions for that student, such as under guardianship.

SCHOOL SAYS THEY HAVE TO TALK WITH OUR “INDEPENDENT EVALUATOR”

As a result of a due process complaint, my son’s school has to pay for an Independent Evaluation (Assistive Technology). The school sent home a release of information to talk to the private evaluator. District said this occurs whenever they pay for an eval. “They need to be able to communicate with the evaluator to answer any questions. In addition we provide our evaluation report so they can see what has already been done.” I was hoping for a true independent evaluation. Do I have to consent for other than a copy of the report?

DOES DOE MANDATE LRE?

My state DOE is telling districts to tell parents there is a mandate for LRE and inclusion from IDEA and they are just following it. I know this isn’t true, however, parents are misled and intimidated when they hear this. What can be done to fight the DOE’s deception?

JG
08/11/2015 11:50 am

I’m not sure what your state is saying, so I can’t say how accurate it is. That said…

IDEA absolutely does mandate that students be educated in THEIR least restrictive environment. Their LRE is an individual decision based on their needs, as defined in their IEP. This is not, of course, always a general education classroom.

I will go on to say that a more restrictive placement “on paper” may be a less restrictive placement in practice. For example, an out of district placement could be less restrictive than an in district program if the quality of learning and supports allows a student to spend more successful time with their peers and in the community.

Carol
08/13/2015 4:00 pm

LRE is still not a mandate the way the law is written, rather a strong preference for it:
http://www.parentcenterhub.org/wp-content/uploads/repo_items/IDEA2004regulations.pdf see page 46585
“Discussion: The LRE requirements in §§ 300.114 through 300.117 express a strong preference, not a mandate, for educating children with disabilities in regular classes alongside their peers without disabilities. “

JG
08/14/2015 2:30 pm

You’re right, IDEA does not require that students with disabilities be educated in a general education classroom. But the general education classroom and the least restrictive environment are not synonymous.

IDEA unequivocally mandates that students with disabilities be educated in THEIR least restrictive environment. A student’s LRE is an individual determination based on their individual needs.

For most students with disabilities, their LRE will be the general education environment. For other students, however, the LRE may be another type of environment or combination of environments. To borrow directly from IDEA, LRE as a “continuum” of environments is a nice way to describe this concept.

See 34 CFR § 300.114, 300.115, and 300.116.

JG
08/10/2015 4:48 pm

The Civil Rights Act and the Equal Education Opportunities Act address the rights of students with regard to race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, regardless of disability status. The CRA prohibits discrimination against students based on membership in a protected class. The EEOA requires schools to help qualified students overcome barriers to equal participation. These two laws and related case law provide a right to ELL instruction.

These are all federal laws. Your state will have its own special education regulations, as well as regulations regarding ELLs (or ESLs, ESOLs, LEPs, or CLDs – states use different descriptors). Your state may also offer guidance about addressing the needs of students with membership in both classes.

JG
08/10/2015 4:47 pm

Amber –

There is no federal law that exclusively addresses students in both categories. Here is what we do have…

The ADA and Section 504 address the rights of students with disabilities, regardless of ELL status. The ADA prohibits discrimination against students with disabilities. Section 504 entitles qualified students with disabilities to a free and appropriate public education.

IDEA is the federal special education law. It offers a number of rights to eligible students with disabilities, regardless of ELL status. It also offers specific rights to eligible students whose native language is not English. It entitles them to evaluations in their native language and to have their language needs considered when the IEP is developed.

TEACHER DISMISSED, STUDENTS MOVED

A school has an autism specific program/class with 4 students and a teacher along with assistants.At the end of the year, 3 of the 4 students moved up to the next school. The teacher is dismissed from her job and the remaining child is moved to the CDC class across the hall. Teacher has immaculate record and great eval scores.
If they had not fired this teacher, would they have had to keep this program open for the 1 remaining child? Would they have had to move the teacher with the children, since their next school had no autism specific program?
