CSE meeting tomorrow!!!HELP

My ds's meeting is tommorow afternoon to set up his IEP for next year.He has not meet any of his goals for math this year and his teacher just wants to keep things on his IEP just the way they are.My ds is 8(almost 9)he was moved into a third grade inclusion class this year.He has ADHD and is on meds. that really help him focus in class.He had a nuero. psych. eval that said he has non specified learning disablities.My ds writes most of his numbers backwards and also will read numbers backwards ex.17 as71.I feel that the school can do more to help but I dont know what I should even ask for.Does anyone have any ideas?He use to struggle with reading but with a full on approach by the school he is now doing great.I feel that if they do the same with math as they did with reading he would at least have meet one of the three math goals set for this year.I am just confused that the school does not see there is a problem and just wants to keep playing the wait and see game.We are so proud of ds he has come along way he got an A in science and social studies.What bothers me is the school offered a before school program for math and english to help kids prepare for the state test in May yet there is no extra help to teach my son how to add and subtract 2 digit numbers(those are 2 of his goals on his IEP)Does anyone have any advice also I would like them to give him some help over the summer.(last year they put him in a 12;1;1 class and they worked on math about 10-15 min out of a three hour day.

This doesn't sound like it is working for you, or for your child!

Not sure if dyscalculia was looked into or not. but that was my first thought. They should be doing more, I just am too new myself to know *what* needs to be done.

maybe http://www.dyscalculia.org/diagnosis...e-17-years-old and their LD checklist would help, as they list the type of professionals that help with the issues checked?

I am sure bookworme and brat and others will answer by tomarrow and have much better advice than me. I just responded so you know *someone* read it.

Hi there-
I'm pretty new around here, but I just wanted to say that I'm sorry that your child's needs are not being met as well as they should be. My husband and I are both teachers (band directors, though, so not as well-versed in the IEP world as other teachers would be!), and our youngest child has some special needs and is on an IEP. She is only five, but her neurologist told us that she will have a neuro psych eval. when she is seven (beginning of second grade), and that that will give us and the school a lot of useful information. I know that earlier this school year, my husband was a part of an IEP meeting (as a teacher, not a parent) where the neuro-psychologist who did an eval. on a student actually came to the IEP meeting and shared a bunch of really useful/helpful information with the people involved in the meeting. I know you mentioned that your child has had a neuro psych eval done-maybe it would be possible to use that information a little more to help the school know how best they could meet your child's needs? I'm sure there are people around here who will be much more helpful to you, but I just wanted to let you know you're not alone! Best of luck to you and your son-hope the meeting goes (or went!) well.

Steph

your child does have a specific learning disability and it is likely discaluculia or numerolexia. My younger child who is mostly NT has this (one of the small fragments of spectrum genetics that he ended up with). This goes along with the lack of discrimination that many of our kids have. Just curios if he has strong left right discrimination or not.

It takes a dislexia specialist in this area to identify and provide quality recomondations. With good supports this can be "taken care of" relativly quickly.

Schools will take the "lets see how it goes" as long as they can and you allow it so you will need to take a stand.

I agree...the school will take 'let's see how it goes" unless you speak up...and tell them today....it 's not working...

Good Luck, be strong and prepared to speak up .

sounds to me you actually know exactly what you want done, you just don't feel comfortable asking for it!

You want the same direct one on one help they did for reading to be done for his math. Say that. say you feel like if they had done this, he would have met at least one goal. Also state you want extended school year services (aka summer help) specifically aimed to meet those missed math goals before next year.

also, many people say bring cookies.

good luck!

I just want to say thank you to everyone for your kindness,advice and understanding.DS has been getting services since he was two and I just see these meetings like having to prepare for battle! I will get back later to let you know how everything went.

On a Lighter Note.

IEPs According to Dr. Suess

(author unknown)

Do you like these IEPs?

I do not like these IEP's
I do not like them, Jeeze Louise
We test, we check
we plan, we meet
but nothing ever seems complete.

Would you, could you
like the form?

I do not like the form I see.
Not page 1, not 2, not 3.
Another change,
a brand new box. I think we all
Have lost our rocks.

Could you all meet here or there?

We could not all meet here or there.
We cannot all fit anywhere.
Not in a room
Not in a hall
There seems to be no space at all.

Would you, could you meet again?

I cannot meet again next week
No lunch, no prep
Please hear me speak.
No, not at dusk and not at dawn
At 4 p. m. I should be gone.

Could you hear while all speak out?
Would you write the words they spout?

I could not hear, I would not write
This does not need to be a fight.

Sign here, date there,
Mark this, check that.
Beware the student's ad-vo-cat(e).

You do not like them
so you say
Try it again! Try it again!
and then you may.

If you let me be,
I'll try again
and you will see.

Say!

I almost like these IEP's
I think I'll write 6003.
And I will practice day and night
Until they say
"You've got it right".


just thought you could use that.

So my ds will be in the extended year summer program again this year,I am told it will be different because they will also be providing an8:1:1 class which they did not have last summer.I will not find out until the end of June which school my ds will be going to(they change where the inclusion class are all the time,l was lead to belive that they stayed in the same school for at least 2 years.)Anyway l tabled the meeting until l know who his teachers are and what school he will be in.I am hopeful that it will be the same school and teachers because my ds high anxiety level cannot deal with all this change.
