Shelly: We moved our daughter to a small girls private school after years of school battles to get an IEP and try to have it followed for her dyslexia. She did well in the small class setting and received support and accommodations. She is now in HS and the “support” person serves over 40 girls and does not provide support or remediation. My daughter is responsible for requesting all accommodations in advance and she is drowning. The school is a rigorous, traditional private school and the teaching methods are not up to date in terms of technology which might help her. What might we be able to ask for from our local school district in terms of technology support, if any. I’d like to get their assistive tech person to teach her how to use her computer and apps to lighten her work load and help with writing (which is a huge issue). We already have a tutor for math (as do other girls in her classes) and they suggested a writing tutor. I’m not keen on sending her back to the public school where I’ll have to fight for her again and the classes are short (40 min avg vs. block schedule at private) but we can’t let her grades suffer and her self esteem suffer with no help at her current school. It’s all very disappointing that she’s not being supported.
