How to get my son's High School to impliment assistive technology to support him with his homework
Hello Everyone I am new here. I am having a big problem with getting the highschool to support my son with assistive technology at home with his homework. If anyone has an idea on what I can do to get this taken care of for him I would love it. It took me two years to get them to give him AT during school and because they said that the computers that they put some programs on at school are there for him (neither which are portable so he can't use them while the class is going on) and the grades have come up it doesn't look like he needs the Laptop that I asked for with the programs installed on it. My concern is that they dropped the ball on his decoding issues since he has had an IEP in the third grade and now he is in the 10 grade and not able to reach his potential with out AT. They have said that they will put a computer in a third location that he will have access to (still not portable) and he can always use his lunch. It is evident that he needs the AT and if they are going to be sending homework home with him that will require AT then he won't be able to do it. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get a portable laptop through the school supplied to my son?
