Ds is starting kindergarten August 12th. I requested an IEP during summer and they said they'll get on it when school starts. I haven't signed anything yet. I understand they could deny him any type of services so how can I increase his chances of getting services? What type of testing do they do? It is a charter school, not a typical public school so he'll be in a minority, most kids there don't have special needs. I feel some things are really important:
he needs to be told its time to go to the bathroom- even having the same pre-k teacher for two year who he loved he wouldn't ask to use the bathroom(he used to but regressed) so if he had to go during the three hours he was there he peed his pants. Kindy is 6 1/2 hrs... He's gonna have to go potty there
during a little summer session there he pushed a kid-the kid wasn't following the rules(told to stand in line), it was ds's way to tell the kid he wasn't following rules, behaviors like this need an explanation of what was an appropriate way to handle instead of punishing (they did do that but I want it written down so they continue) vs simply getting into trouble
He has tics/stims that may be annoying (gulping, lip smacking, etc) but he should not be punished for these. He's not disrupting on purpose
i feel he needs speech for articulation issues.
I think he would benefit with fine motor skills help.
any other things that you can think need to be added to my requests? Any tips on getting an IEP?
