My adopted son just turned 7 in April and is going to be entering 1st grade. In March 2009, we were told that the school wanted to increase his time in the SPED room. They never told us that it would be almost 100% time in the SPED room. He was only allowed to join the rest of his kindergarten class for recess. He was having issues with compliance to adult directives. He had been in a preschool SPED room for 2 yrs. He has soiling issues that we are trying to address. The school does not like to deal with the soiling. Since being assigned a 1 on 1 in 2007, he had 4 associates and multiple subs.
We have been trying to find the correct doctors and specialists to help him be the best he can be. It seems like no matter where we turn, we are coming up against brick walls. It's my understand that we should have had a IEP meeting to discuss the upcoming school year-that did not happen. We do not agree with total isolation. He went from a little boy that loved going to school to a little boy very difficult to get ready in the mornings and not wanting to go to school.
Where do we turn? We don't even know if he will have the same 1 on 1 in the fall. Don't we have a right as parents to know what is being planned for our son? Where do I turn?
