My son is in 1st grade and goes to private school. His teacher recommended that we consider getting an IEP on file for him but I am hesitant. My stepson who is with us a little less that half the time has an IEP and it has been nothing short of a disaster. The school just keeps lowering the bar for him year after year and he gets further and further behind. He is in 6th grade and still doesn't even know the months of the year. We try our best but his mom doesn't value school- long story.
Anyhoo!! SInce my son is doing well, straight A's for the most part in all his classes and reading at a 2nd grade level- do I need to get an IEP set up for him? I don't want my son expected to do anything different or less than any of the other kids in class. I realize it is private school and not public like my stepson so maybe the public schools here do things a bit different- it is basically special ed and in his classes he is just not expected to perform to standards.
