You have to be clear when speaking to your childs school personel get names, dates and copies of everything. then go in steps if the school can't help find an advocate for children with disabilities to help. A child like yours deserves a chance at a proper education.17353
be in their face everyday day morning, day pick-up time every school board meeting, everything that is your legal right to do always with a firm and kind word drive them with "be nice but be there every time"17351
If you don't feel comfortable with knowing all the laws that protect your child, plus you've got a school that is already "being difficult," you might want think about hiring an advocate to help you. A good site to find special education adovcates and attorneys is http://www.copaa.org/find/index.php For your own knowledge, a good site to learn more about special education rights is www.wrightslaw.com 17350
i do hot know what the standards are in your school. however in the chicago public schools system their are many first graders who do not know there ABC`s or even their last name. Kdg is not required and many students do not go to pre-school These are reg ed kids.
I don`t know what your district is like but it is possible not knowing your ABC`s does not seem like a problem to the school.
However your child did go to kdg. if he was not able to learn his ABC`s you need to fight for your child and get him the help he needs.
Also this may seem like a dumb question. Was your son taught his ABC`s in Kdg? stranger things have happened.17347
My son was taught his ABC's but my son has a learning disabilities that the school knew about since day 1. They have switched his classrooms from regular ed to collabarative team and it still has not work. the reason being is why was he passed when i requested him to be held back. and the teachers he has give homework that is way passed his abilities. there answers to my concerns are we have to wait for the iep team to find him placement.17346
