My son will be a junior in high school next year. He's had an I.E.P since 6th grade. It wasn't until 2 years ago that I realized that I had to do something to try and get my son more help. Naively, I thought that once the accommodations were in place we would see a marked improvement in his grades. The last two years I had more previsions added because I didn't see an improvement AND he was diagnosed with ADD. Also, he tried meds and didn't like them --so we can't go there. Anyway, this year his tutor asked if there was anything I would like to add to his I.E.P. and I said yes. I also noticed she took some items off his I.E.P and when I e-mailed her inquiring and requesting more add ons she never responded. That is not like her. I have a strong feeling she doesn't know what to do about the addition I asked for and may think I am going overboard. I asked for modifications on work load this time. He was so overwhelmed with the work load last year that he chose to cheat. Teacher never informed me of the 1st offense and so when he did cheat again (same week) ...she let me know he was getting an F. With a kid like him, his parents should have been informed. The answer the teacher gave, if my son was so overwhelmed was finish during study hall or before or after school. That's the answer? I don't know if modifications are in order or not but I am willing to try anything at this point. Any thoughts?
