The counslers tends to overstep their bounderies when it comes to special needs children. Special education teachers are not made aware of things the counslers are doing behind their backs. I know of times they have not been in IEP compliance. Special needs children are put under a microscope no matter what they are doing. This includes going to the bathroom! Meetings for special needs children are conducted without parents being invited or their concent. Special needs children are penalized and removed from classrooms without IEP adjustments or even their parents knowledge. Some special needs children are denied some field trips and preticipatation in recess and school play day. Again this is without parents knowledge. I have given a low parent involvement because the school does not contact parents. Parents find out weeks later when something has happened at school. Usually parents find out whenever their child decides to tell them. Even then the parents don't get all the facts and details. Special needs children and their siblings are bullied by other students.
