Can the school expel a child with a disability if she has not yet been found eligible for special ed services?

If you are a parent, teacher or administrator who is dealing with behavior problems or school discipline issues, you need to know about:

  • requirements for meeting the needs of children with behavior problems
  • FAPE: the right to a free appropriate public education
  • the role of the IEP team
  • functional behavior assessments
  • behavior intervention plans

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn what the law requires IEP teams to do when children with disabilities have behavior problems, what rights your child has, and what parents can do to protect these rights.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

IEPs for Children with Behavior Problems

The school had my child with autism arrested. The charges were dismissed but I am afraid this will happen again. What can I do?

Indiana Advocate Pat Howey answers a parent's questions and offers strategies to use in dealing with this difficult situation.



What Parents and Teachers Need to Know

Your child's IEP team is required to consider "Special Factors" that affect your child's ability to learn.

If your child's behavior impedes his learning or that of others, the team should consider the use of positive behavior interventions and supports, and other strategies to address that behavior.

Assessments: Getting Good Diagnostics

You need good diagnostics before coming up with the correct solution to behavior problems. Your child may require evaluation and additional testing to narrow down, diagnose, and set up a treatment plan.

All important educational decisions - behavioral intervention plans, supports, services in the IEP - are based on test scores.


Aggressiveness: Will Special Ed Help?

Behavior is a way to communicate, especially for young children.

  • What is your child trying to communicate?
  • What is causing the aggressive behavior?

To make rational decisions about his education you need to know what is causing the aggression, what needs to be done, and if the school can help.
