IEP meetings aren’t only way to get better schooling for IEP student in Missouri

Parents who struggle with the public school often get the “spin” from the building staff and don’t realize that often the power to take more control of the problem situation is outside the district.  Many entities exist that are ready to accept reports of public institutions that are not providing adequate access or appropriate programming.

Advocates at Special Education Parent’s Advocacy Link dba TheIEPCenter.com™ support parents who have schooling problems by providing information so the parent can advocate for the child with special needs. Schools often don’t put plans into place legitimately unless a parent pursues action. Action can involve systems outside of the school district.   It’s what a parent doesn’t know that can deprive children of needed services.  Our advocates are available to participate in school meetings after consult*.steeringwheeldashboardwoman2pics

Don’t be bamboozled!  Waiting and hoping for problems to go away allows our children to regress.  Hoping the problem will go away will only delay getting the problem addressed.  Waiting too long to address concerns eliminates opportunities for correction.

Special Ed frustrations for parents in Missouri schools

Paraprofessionals:
Is a paraprofessional assisting your child in any way during the school day? Many times the para is the second adult in a classroom.


Many school districts instruct paraprofessionals to avoid conversation with parents, and, do not share with the paraprofessionals the relevant information on the IEP that would assist the paraprofessional from understanding goals for the child. Many districts do not allow paras to attend IEP meetings on school time.


What can a parent do?  Parents can directly share an IEP with the paras, set up email communications with teachers that cc: the para(s), and directly invite paras to IEP meetings. 
Paras often know more about our kids than the teachers who are often overwhelmed. 
Paras and teachers are greatly appreciated!

Fixing IEP problems at public school in Missouri?

IEP meeting deception in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma schools

Featured

Parents go to IEP meetings trusting the public school staff to do right by their child. However, many school districts often operate on the premise of providing services to a child that fits what already exists at the district, and disregard the unique needs’ of the child that the IDEA indicates a child with special needs’ is entitled. steeringmomhead-1 This hidden agenda may exist the entirety of the student’s educational experience.

Within the last ten years this advocate sees a decrease in the amount of support staff available to our children with IEPs who need it.  Paraprofessionals, especially, are often available to groups of children rather than for an individual child.  The overburdened paraprofessional quickly suffers burnout and our child’s needs go unaddressed.  A parent might hear in an IEP meeting that their child will have a paraprofessional; however, unknown to the parent is that the para serves four or five student simultaneously. Teachers are overwhelmed.

Some public schools continue to deceive parents that everything is fine at the school.  Those schools continue to do this because no one has called them to the carpet on it, or, parents don’t know how to  stop it. Parents have more control than we realize; many mechanisms outside of the school district are waiting to receive reports from parents of inappropriate public education scenarios of children with disabilities. the-iep-center
