Schools often don’t put legitimate, appropriate programming in place unless a parent pursues action. Many parents are contacting us to share accounts of student’s who now attend in a new building but the positive behavior strategies mistakenly aren’t implemented from the previous year, although though the IEP continues in effect.
Public school staff often don’t understand the importance of proactively implementing behavior plans and accommodations. Many students with ADD or ADHD need time for extra movement; or to do their desk work while standing. Advocates at TheIEPCenter.com™ help parents solve IEP problems by providing information so the parent can advocate for the child with special needs. Schools often don’t put plans into place legitimately unless a parent pursues action. Educational “systems” move slowly. It’s what a parent doesn’t know that can deprive children of needed services. We go to IEP meetings with parents.
Don’t be bamboozled! Waiting and hoping for problems to go away allows our children to regress. Hoping the problem will go away will only delay getting the problem addressed. Waiting too long to address concerns eliminates opportunities for correction.
