Lisa:  I have a child that has had an IEP for several years (shes now in 3rd grade). She has been evaluated by the school and an outside source and has been found to have a reading level of a kindergarten student at best. I asked the school to place her in an after school reading program and they have refused. They have stated that because of her excessive tardies and absences they feel that she hasn’t been able to learn. How do I go about getting her services? She really needs the help and is starting to become very negative about school and learning.

The school is quoting rules from the federal IDEA law. These laws may or may not apply in your child’s case. But the district still has the responsibility to teach all students to read. If they do not do this through special ed, they can do it through intensive instruction. Your state parent training & information project can assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center You can also contact various school administrators & remind them in writing of this responsibility.
