IEP Question...What would you do?
DIVI have a son who is 9 and has an IEP. He goes to his special education teacher for math (plus speech twice a week). but is main streamed for the remainder of day, however he is still struggling & I have spoke to his teacher about modifying more work because of his frustrations and work load yet she has only taken 5 words off spelling list (out of 25). No other accommodations have been made. Her explanation for not wanting to modify to much is because she does not want him to be lazy or not try hard. My son is very frustrated & is hating school. He takes an average of about 2 hours nightly to finish homework and he is so tired that when I start to read to him he falls fast asleep. I think its time for another IEP meeting or should I just meet with his teach one on one. I also don't want my son to use this learning disability as a crutch but I am worried.
