Student sent home since public school no program in Kansas

Student with behaviors that the public school doesn’t appropriately address is sent home. The parent has no idea that the school has a duty to provide programming for this student to the same extent that typical student benefit from schooling (such as a full day). In some instances the public school completes paperwork called “homebound” (this is not the same as “homeschooling”).  rsz_parapro2-199x300

Public school staff often don’t understand the importance of proactively implementing positive behavior supports.   Advocates at TheIEPCenter.com™ help parents solve IEP problems by providing information so they can advocate for the child with special needs.  We can go with parents to IEP meetings.  Schools often don’t put plans into place legitimately unless a parent pursues action; and there are several outside of the district.  Educational “systems” move slowly.  It’s what a parent doesn’t know that can deprive children of needed services.

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.

We help parents at low-cost.  We help parents prepare for school meetings and also go to school meetings with parents.

Special Ed pitfalls the first weeks of new school year Kansas

Here’s some common instances that happen the first weeks of public school that work against our children with special needs: rsz_solarizedstudentagainstlockers-300x249

  1. All the teachers and staff who work with our child are unaware the child has an IEP or 504 plan.
  2. Student wasn’t offered to preview the facility or learn the layout of the building prior to the doors opening for the year.
  3. Staff doesn’t know how to work with behaviors related to our child’s disability.
  4. Bus drivers/helpers interpret behaviors as worthy of suspension from bus.
  5. School staff doesn’t report to parent the four items (above).

Special Education Technology Assessment of students lack expertise; IEP meeting in Kansas

Many school districts have the “technology” or the school district’s  “IT” person come to the IEP meeting if the parent has asked for technology evaluation of the child with special needs’. Many school districts have not experienced a parent requesting this type of evaluation for a special education student. rsz_1measure-indicators

Advocates at the IEP Center can share with parents strategies on how to deal with scenarios like this.  Schools may be reluctant to develop an IEP for your child since it might require a specialist to spend time with your child which increases the school expenses.  Don’t be bamboozled!  the-iep-center

Early Childhood Program in Kansas observed by parent is questionable

Parent observed her child in the early childhood program where she was told high school students would be instructing her child. As the months passed, parent never saw any high school students work with her child. She again observed and saw her child not getting any interaction. She contacted the building principal who indicated she would communicate the concern to staff.  No changes were made to the child’s program. the-iep-center

What programming is your child getting in Kansas early childhood facilities?  Is it actually occurring?

There are avenues to pursue to address this; it may be most effective if a parent pursues correction before regression occurs. Delay allows problems to get worse.  Public schools aren’t eager to offer “make-up” for their failures and usually don’t.  The parent is the IEP monitor!rsz_two-together-129219-300x203

Advocates at the iep center help parents solve IEP problems by providing information so they can advocate for the child with special needs.  Don’t be bamboozled! We can go to school meetings with the parent.

ADHD student needs’ ignored

Accommodations listed in the student’s IEP included extended time to turn in assignments. One teacher disregarded application of the accommodation and penalized student by giving lower grades for “missed assignments” even though student didn’t know about the assignment or turned it  in later than the typical students.Teacher would later pull student out of other classes to talk to student, making a spectacle of the student.

Some teachers have the mindset  allowing our student with special needs to have accommodations is “unfair” to the other students.  This attitude often results in poor grades for our student and a stigma.

This scenario snowballed into a fiasco that could have been avoided.

Public school staff often don’t understand the importance of proactively implementing accommodations. Advocates at TheIEPCenter.com help parents solve IEP and 504 problems by providing information so they can advocate for the child with special needs. Schools often don’t put plans into place legitimately unless a parent pursues action.

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.
