My son has strong language and reading delays. The school is useless and I am thinking if he was learning at home instead he would do better. It is hard to make them go to school almost 8 hours and then come home to homeschool because their teacher refuses to follow an IEP. So I am thinking of possibly pulling him out of the school system and homeschooling.
If I homeschool him could he still get special services like speech and PT? I am working on getting those outside of the classroom anyway but wondering since they still get the tax dollar set aside for him as a child in the district if he could still get the services.

They all sat in the IEP meeting while his teacher called him lethargic and basically lazy (she bit her tongue I think to avoid getting slapped) and she is clueless. Everyone bows down to the teachers because they are union protected and the special needs dept. is out sourced and can be replaced any time by another agency. They use a loophole in the law about keeping him with mainstream students and his current IEP doesn't have specific times just as needed and the prior team knew as needed meant more then less. So they use that to avoid pulling them out. Actually everyone wants him pulled out except his teacher. Someone mentioned homeschooling and it is starting to sound like the way to go. I just would hate for him to lose his speech therpaist.
