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.

IEP meetings: what parents aren’t told Kansas

IEP students who have difficulty at public school who are often sent home, sent to in-school suspension (ISS), or out-of-school suspension (OSS) may not be in the right program, yet the public school doesn’t offer a “right” program. This predicament is addressed by Congress when Congress arranged for mediation between parents and schools.  Mediation is where parents can take more control of the problems with the public school. rsz_teen-reading

Often a Kansas IEP team doesn’t or won’t think beyond the routine in their building.  Serious matters require using a different approach to achieve reasonable outcomes for a student and mediation is where this can happen; mediation participants are not the usual IEP meeting attendees.

Schools may lead parents to believe that “due process” is the only option for the parent to pursue; this is not true.  A parent is being gracious to the district when participating in mediation rather than pursuing other avenues.

Advocate at The IEP Center is experienced in special ed mediation in Kansas; it’s an efficient and often quick way to resolve issues.

Don’t be bamboozled by the school!  Our advocates inform parents about what Congress has for parents to help your child.  Visit our website to set a phone consult;  theiepcenter.com

School wants parent to do work with student at home. IEP meeting

The parent was overwhelmed by caring for the child before we even entered the IEP meeting.  Discussion developed and some of the related service personnel insisted that the mother do a quantity of exercises with the child at home. I indicated that the parent was here at the meeting to learn what the school plans to do for the child for the upcoming year; this got discussion back on track.

Do you feel manipulated in IEP meetings? Our advocates are aware how parents may be bamboozled in IEP meetings and not even realize it!   It’s important for parents to set the tone of the relationship with the school early on.  Parents should be respected; not manipulated. WIth an advocate at your side, the school will see you are serious about your child’s education and expect the school to play their role.

Parents in Kansas who need help dealing with the public school for their child with an IEP can consult with a professional special education advocate at The IEP Center.   Advocates also help parents when the parent wants an advocate to go to a meeting at the school with them!  Never go alone.

Parents often need to work to make sure the pubic school system isn’t failing their child.  Passing grades doesn’t necessarily mean your child is learning.

Autism help for Kansas public schools

A lot of our children with autism or asperger’s struggle in the public schools; especially since these kids look typical.  Many of the adults expect them to function like typical children so expectations are similar. Appearances are misleading however.

Many educators convince the parent to take a “wait and see” approach to their child’s coping at school assuming the school will do the right thing.  Some of these students exhibit behaviors characteristic of autism/asperger’s and the school doesn’t understand why.  Sometimes the police are called!

Kansas is one state that has resources available to the public schools to train educators how to work with our kids.  Often that resource is only tapped after the student has been disciplined.  Parents must be proactive BEFORE behaviors occur.AngelsenseRunnerJPEG

Flunking high school due to ADD

Student is flunking numerous classes although accommodations are listed in the IEP.  Parents have realized for years that the student needs help since he struggles in typical classrooms; he is successful with one-on-one instruction.photoboybooks

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
