Many parents are contacting us to share accounts of high school freshman who’s positive behavior strategies used in middle school no longer apply in high school, even though the IEP from middle school still applies.
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 they can advocate for the child with special needs. We go to IEP meetings. 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.
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.
