Student with behaviors that the public school doesn’t appropriately address is sent home. The parent has no idea that the school has a duty to provide programming for this student to the same extent that typical student benefit from schooling (such as a full day). In some instances the public school completes paperwork called “homebound“.
Public school staff often don’t understand the importance of proactively implementing positive behavior supports. Advocates at TheIEPCenter.com™ help parents solve IEP problems by providing information so they can advocate for the child with special needs. Schools often don’t put plans into place legitimately unless a parent pursues action. Educational “systems” move slowly. It’s what a parent doesn’t know that can deprive children of needed services.
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.
FYI: The Missouri legislature is currently considering Senator Eigels’s bill titled Empowering Missouri Parents Act. It would potentially assist in streamlining information parents could acquire from the public school.
We help parents at low-cost. We help parents prepare for school meetings and also go to school meetings with parents.
