Recently someone wrote that she does not even ask for IEP's !
I cannot help but think this is foolish. If they were not necessary for
the child then why do them?
Some children may be harmful to others? Or need a certain approach to
learn. Not
reading or asking for IEP's reminds me of the days when classroom
teachers used to fight the special ed teacher's help and fight the
students going to special classes (art, music, etc.) because they felt
they could do it all on their own and need no one's help. A miracle
worker of such.
An ED child has been given IEP's for us to follow, at the cost of
staffings and much time devoted to such. I think that the art teachers
have the obligation to read them and
to follow the procedures that have been out lined for a consistent
approach to discipline and learning for the student.
