Resolving Special Education Issues: "It Seems Like the School Is Not Following My Child's IEP--What Can I Do?" PHP-c93
This document describes the steps to solving an issue sent in by a parent. The scenario addressed in this document is one where a parent indicates sometimes his/her child comes home from school and reports that he did not have time to finish his math or reading tests at school. The parent and the teacher had agreed at his Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting that he will have extended time to complete all tests and daily work, but the parent is concerned that this is not happening. The parent is wondering how he/she can address this issue with the school. This a common question that many parents ask. It is important for the parent to feel comfortable with what the IEP team agreed upon, and the parent must be kept informed that these services and accommodations are actually being provided to the child. This document provides some useful steps that parents can take to be sure that the IEP is carried out as it is written. A brief list of related resources is also included.
