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).

dysgraphia student struggles in school Kansas

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.

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

IEP meeting deception in Kansas public schools

Parents go to IEP meetings trusting the public school staff to do right by their child. However, school districts often operate on the premise of providing services to a child that fits what already exists at the district, and disregard the unique needs’ of the child that the IDEA indicates a child with special needs’ is entitled.rsz_lawwomanwithcoupleinbackground

Within the last ten years this advocate sees a decrease in the amount of support staff available to our children with IEPs who need it.  Paraprofessionals, especially, are often available to groups of children rather than for an individual child.  The overburdened paraprofessional quickly suffers burnout and our child’s needs go unaddressed.  A parent might hear in an IEP meeting that their child will have a paraprofessional; however, unknown to the parent is that the para serves four or five student simultaneously.

Schools continue to deceive parents that everything is fine at the school.  Schools continue to do this because no one has called them to the carpet on it, or, parents don’t know how to put a stop to it. the-iep-center
