Our kids with IEPs get suspended from public school. Unlike non-disabled students, a special process is in place for kids with IEPs. In most states, students with IEPs can be suspended up to ten school days in a school year. After ten days of suspensions, a different process is suppose to kick in other than what applies to “regular” education students.
Some school districts ignore this and continue suspending/expelling special ed students as if they were typical students. A parent must be ready to address this with the public school; if not, the problem compounds. Suspensions often take a toll on the family; sometimes resulting in a parent losing a job!
The IEP Center.com ™ advocates helps parents deal with the public school for our kids with learning disabilities, autism, aspergers, cognitive deficits, cerebral palsy. Advocates are available with extensive experience helping parents deal with public schools. Get serious about your child’s schooling. Schools may bamboozle parents because they have and continue until the parent takes a stand.
Often it is the parents who set the tone of their relationship with the public school while the child is young. Parents who are assertive and ask questions are the students who are less chance to let slip through the cracks by the school. Parents who present themselves as not interested, or who don’t ask questions are misunderstood and unknowingly, more easily trampled.
Parents in Missouri or Kansas who need help dealing with the public school for their child with an IEP can consult with a professional special education advocate at The IEP Center™. Advocates also help parents when the parent wants an advocate to go to a meeting at the school.
Parents often need to work to make sure the public school system isn’t failing their child. Passing grades doesn’t necessarily mean your child is learning. Delays in addressing school problems may make the situation worse.
