Non-Verbal: SCHOOL HAS NON-VERBAL SON PLAY WITH DVD / IPAD FOR HOURS

Print Friendly

Carmen:  My son has numerous disabilities. He is non-verbal. He has a nurse that attends school with him. The nurse has been with my son for 2 1/2 years. My son’s nurse reports that my son plays with DVD or IPad for hours a day. The school states he spends a total of 30 minutes a day. My son’s behavior when he comes home from school indicates he has spent hours a day. When my son is over stimulated from such activities he looks “stoned”. I am tired of the school lying to me about how my son is educated. So much more to this story and I do have an advocate but she was unsure of the answer. We live Virginia and are a one-consent state. This issue has been occurring for the last 3 years. Typically, I do not send my son to summer school and detox him from electronics. I do not have the energy to continue this. Please help!

Your state parent training & information project can assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center The school should be addressing his IEP goals. He should be making progress on his goals. That is the place to begin, but goals may need to be changed or added to.
