Teenager with dysgraphia and ADHD had accommodations listed in the IEP for extra time to write assignments. The teacher insisted he write assignments and was penalized if he turned in assignments using technology.
Many students today will enter a world where technology will be used exclusively. An IEP meeting is needed to address these issues.
Public school staff often don’t understand the importance of proactively implementing accommodations. Advocates at TheIEPCenter.com help parents solve IEP 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. Sometimes years pass and teachers don’t know the accommodations that were tried in the past with the child.
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.
