I just got my 4th letter home in the 1 1/2 week that school has been in session! What a cry baby! I showed up early to meet the teacher, who was too busy conversationalizing. THEN she admits to me she has not taken a look at any students record much less my son who has a 504c with particular exclusions for his dislexia. OR that he is a 120 IQ student with severe ADD. *SIGH!* I get only seconds to explain that my son has a particular problem with inhibition control (vs hyperactivity) as well as being able to focus. I tried to explain what that meant, but she must have ADD too because she was not able to focus on comprehending the concept. So now, here we are again, for the 4th year in a row trying to explain to teachers that there is no such thing as a magic pill, that there has to be minor differences in the way the classroom is run and at what level my son gets into 'trouble' compared to other children. EVERY year ignorant or lazy teachers want to write off my son as a discipline problem instead of changing thier close minded ways to accomodate a student with a learning disability! I am so sick of having to be my son's teachers teacher! And every year some dumb teacher sends my son home feeling misunderstood and incapable of being normal.
