  • I don't know what IEP is, but it sounds like your grandson has some pretty big issues. I would recommend counselling, or a summer of hard labor work under a big grandpa guy with a tough skin, soft heart, that could break him but know when to stop, and be there when he breaks to love him and finally listen when the problems start to come out.

  • Sounds like he needs an alternative school. What do you want the IEP to do? Allow him to be a terror in school and not get kicked out?

  • He needs to see a counselor. You need to go sit down in the IEP meetings and see what the teacher is suggesting and work together with the school.

  • I know he has an IEP but does he also have a behavior plan in place? Which if he is over 13 that should have been done a long time ago. He also needs outside counseling long term.

  • An IEP can only do so much good. Your grandson still has to follow the rules. Is there a behavoir plan? If not you need to get one in place. Full time counseling is not a bad idea either. He needs to work on his issues while he is younger so he will be able to deal with adulthood.

  • If he has an IEP with his needs clearly stated and has a behavior plan in place, they CANNOT kick him out for the behaviors (as long as they are addressed in the IEP and being supported with behavior mod, etc.).

  • TARARENEE--You are WRONG. A school can kick a child out for his behavior if he is on an IEP. My friend has 2 kids on IEP's with behavior modifications in them and they have both been suspended numerous times and have been kicked out of the regular school because of their behavior. They were placed in the school for out of control kids, the place were if they get kicked out of they have no where else to go.

    OP: It sounds like your grandson's behavior is harmful to others and that is NEVER ok, even on an IEP. An IEP doesn't give the freedom to misbehave and disrupt the school and his classmates. He needs outside behavioral counseling to help him learn to control his behaviors.

  • The school system cannot impose a long-term suspension or expel a student with special educational needs if the behavior for which s/he is being disciplined was a "manifestation" of his or her disability. (§1415(k)(4)(B),(C)) IDEA provides that the IEP team must find that behavior was a manifestation of the child's disability if:

    the conduct in question was caused by, or had a direct and substantial relationship to, the child’s disability; or
    the conduct in question was the direct result of the local educational agency’s failure to implement the IEP.

    There are LAWS. IDEA, ADA. The school HAS to follow them. However, schools and their attorney's COUNT ON parents NOT knowing the rights of their child with disabilities and they break them all the time.
    And no, having an IEP does not give a child the right to misbehave. It does however mean that the child has SPECIAL NEEDS and should be given the proper support

  • To help them.

    Here is a website that lists disability rights laws.
