IEP teachers don’t understand learning style of student

High school student who has attended for years in the district started the fall at a new building where hundreds of students attend. The student is complex and has special needs’. Student was doing well academically previous year but now has some failing grades and hates school.100_0673

The assertive parent requested an IEP meeting where the parent learned that the teachers’ didn’t understand the child’s disability and expected the student to fit their mold. One of these teacher’s even needed “more time” to get to know the student!  These same teachers devised a “new” plan to attempt to make it work again in their building; however, it’s doubtful the student will entertain the thought.

Parents often need to work to make sure the public school system isn’t providing schooling that addresses the needs’ of the child.  Passing grades doesn’t necessarily mean your child is learning.rsz_diversityboyinclasslookingatbook  Delays in addressing these issues may make it worse for the student.
