Hi, my son is on an IEP. He's in a parochial school and last year the teacher was very engaged in talking with OT and spec. ed. about behavior plans and strategies to help him focus. She read everything that was given to her.
Now I know that private schools are under no obligation to implement IEPs, however I chose to continue on this year because the principal said that this was a good place for my son to be. This year's teacher, however, is not following the IEP. She "doesn't have time" to implement a behavior plan and document anything because there are multiple kids in the class on IEPs (note: those kids are all new this year). So, I've escalated to the principal reminding her of the multiple conversations we had about this being a better fit than public (note: our town's public system does not earn high marks in our state). Now I'm wondering if I should have gone public because they're obligated to implement the IEP - even though I know even that can take some pushing.
Maybe I should look at schools specifically for ADHD kids?
