Mary: I am a school social worker who supports an 8th grade student with Autism who is transitioning to the high school. The current data supports that both his current teacher and myself are key supports in helping him to regulate behavior, including threatening physical aggression and yelling out prejudiced words that could result in others harming him. The family’s attorney wants me to write in the transition IEP that myself and his teacher must go to the high school to support him (I agree with this until the high school staff are sufficiently able to support him). My school district states that I should not write this into the iep. My first priority is to support my student. Do you have any suggestions? It’s pretty complicated, however for the sake of brevity, I just noted the key points.
