Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sheila:  I questioned the IEP not being followed and how she grades and now my son feels threatened and I feel she is retaliating against him. I have left messages for special ed and assistant principal no one is returning calls. I am afraid to send my autistic son to school. He is home today. I don’t know what to do next?

I questioned my child’s IEP not being followed and my child was retaliated against. Teacher does not like my son at all. She makes him face the wall, or work in the closet, When he turns in the work she writes the grade “F” and writes a derogatory name on his work then hangs it up. This us causing my son to have anxiety. She refuses to discuss the matter with us and the school including Super Intendent are no help. What should I do?

Document every conversation. Document specifics, not generalities. Why did your son feel differently? Can he articulate anything the teacher actually did or said that demonstrated a change in behavior? Ask the school tp provide you with policy and procedure for questioning how the IEP is being followed or how grading/assignments are modified.

As to what Chuck says, yes should call your Special Education Director and I would also get the Superintendent involved to. The more people you have involved the more likely you will get the honest answer. I would even send in notes/emails to the teacher and assistant principle and make sure you have copies of them so you have a paper trail. I wish you the best of luck.

If you have not tried contacting the special ed director, you should try to do so. Your state parent training & information center can provide you some assistance. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center
