Christine:  We moved to a new district and I want my son to get a multi sensory reading program as recommended by the neuropsych (private eval), His former school did not provide this as he was reading at grade level but we provided him OG tutoring. How should we approach in getting this in his new school?

Is he currently reading at grade level? You don’t have to wait three years for a reevaluation. Also, have you got frequent progress monitoring in the IEP?

I don’t think you can dictate the type of program that the school district chooses to utilize? If so, there is also staff training involved and would the school district even fund such training and ongoing professional development? With my situation a few years ago, OG trained professionals did not want to travel far to tutor. For now, what online programs are available to help. I have found that there is no one size fits all program. You have an IEE to back you up. For my child, her IEE was a game changer and the district used multi sensory reading programs–though not all OG–that was fine with me as she made progress and is now headed for college. We also used LEXIA at home. Find what works for your child and don’t wait for the school district – but work with them.
