Often these children show artistic talents that shoudl be
nurtured. For some children the arts are the one area that they
have success! I run a large public school regional arts program
and I see this on a daily basis.

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