Drey:  My daughter started a school in January. She was only there TWO weeks and were having a conference that they wanted to retain her. At this time they also said they would work with her. This is were the problem started. She was left to exist in this classroom and when we ask for conferences we were meet with resistance. I kept a paper trail on how not of her work was being checked and there was always excuses. We appealed but it was upheld and they want to offer her IEP.

Sometimes staff suggests writing an IEP for a child in an insensitive, and even offensive way. I say, Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth! In the past, an IEP may have been a ticket to a do-nothing, know-nothing room hidden away at the back of the school. That is no longer the case in most schools. You can make sure it is not, by helping design your child’s IEP. After all, an IEP is an INDIVIDUALIZED education program. Figure out what you think your child’s goals should be in school, and what would help your child be successful. Bring your own draft to the IEP meeting!
