Biji: My 9th grade son was diagnosed with ADD after retained in 2nd grade. Assessed for Gifted 2 years ago. This year he was diagnosed with ASD, no intellectual impairment, in addition to his ADD and Gifted. Social and behavioral were not addressed. He is super smart, very disorganized, takes long to do written assignments, difficulty expressing himself verbally and written, is socially awkward. With going to a gifted, highly acclaimed school, they are refusing to provide him certain accommodations that would help him, but is provided extended time. NOT following the IEP to provide him with notes, photograph the homework board, abridged tests/assignments/quizzes, and no ESE small group for organization. NONE of this is being done!
He is penalized for turning in ‘late’ assignments, gets partial notes, some pull out once a month, no small group, no modifications on tests, etc. Refuse to allow him to have an audio recorder. They are trying to fail him so they can put him out of the Magnet Program which he LOVES.
How do I get the school to adhere to an IEP, include actual goals and accommodations, and get them to work with me not against? I don’t want to have him change schools again, but they are refusing to provide his accommodations.
