Teresa: I have a 4th grader who is Dyslexic. His IEP states that he should have 150 minutes of direct instruction, but he says he is not getting help. The response to my query was that the special education teacher comes to the classroom and teaches lessons in comprehension and phonics to the entire classroom. I am unsure how this fulfills his need as he does not need help in comprehension. The teacher says that while in the class, she occasionally asks him if he needs help. I was told as long as the special ed teacher is in the classroom, they are meeting the minutes required, even if they do not even interact with him. Is this true???
