IEP school help for Missouri parents

Schools often don’t put  legitimate, appropriate programming in place unless a parent pursues action. Many parents are contacting us to share 100_0673accounts of student’s who now  attend in a new building but the positive behavior strategies mistakenly aren’t implemented  from the previous year, although though the IEP continues in effect.

Public school staff often don’t understand the importance of proactively implementing behavior plans and accommodations.  Many students with ADD or ADHD need time for extra movement; or to do their desk work while standing.  Advocates at TheIEPCenter.com™ help parents solve IEP 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.  Educational “systems” move slowly.  It’s what a parent doesn’t know that can deprive children of needed services.  We go to IEP meetings with parents.

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.

school suspension of special ed student in Missouri

More parents are contacting me for help about out-of-school suspensions for students with behaviors related to the graphicschoolcontentbubbleedgovdisability.  The most frequent disability mentioned is “autism spectrum”.

Many district believe, in error, that these students can be suspended up to ten days on a whim.  Although state regulations allow for such consideration, it is not necessarily compliant with the district’s duty to provide a free education, nor how people with disabilities are to be treated by public entities. Yes, school boards have been known to make policy that is not consistent and state and federal law.

A strong advocate can make a huge difference in the relationship a parent has with a public school district.  Many parents have told me that the school now respects them and no longer manipulates them.  There are several approaches parents can use to take control!

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.  Time is your enemy.

Missouri parents enroll IEP students

As parents in Missouri enroll their IEP student for school year 2015-16, they may not be aware school’s  staff doesn’t really understand the needs of the child.  This is why the Congress put the IEP process into place and the opportunity for a parent to trigger evaluations.the-iep-center (800x640)

Parents can check to see how many years’ have passed since the school last did a COMPLETE evaluation of the child to assess all areas of SUSPECTED disability.  Parents can request the school do this after one year has passed.  Parents can submit their private evaluations from outside professionals at any time to the school.

Also, parents can trigger the school to pay for outside evaluations, called “Independent Educational Evaluations”.  There are parameters for this including that it is triggered by the parent as a result of the parent’s disagreement with the evaluation conducted by the school district.

Independent Educational Evaluations (IEE) often prove helpful to both the student and staff since the IEE often points out areas that need to be addressed.NICHCYphotomagnifyglass3-198x300

Delays in taking action to get support for a child may have ramifications.  It is usually beneficial if the parent pursues correction early since issues may snowball into larger problems.

Parents in Missouri 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 with them!  Never go alone.

Parents often need to work to make sure the pubic school system isn’t failing their child.  Passing grades doesn’t necessarily mean your child is learning.
