Autism - Support Across the Spectrum Autism - Support Across the Spectrum

Can I put in his IEP that he needs the pretest/study page earlier than the rest of the kids?

DS is in the 2nd grade.  He got a study page on social studies on Friday afterschool just like the rest of the kids.  We did a lot of videos, manipulatives, reviewing to get him to know the stuff all weekend.  

We are wondering if we can put in his IEP that we review the study page a few days ahead of the rest of the class.  Is that possible?  We feel he needs more time at home to remember the info.

Anything is possible, the question is will the teacher agree... try it and let us know!

I don't think it is unreasonable. Just ask.

It is a shame that you would have to put something like that in a IEP. The teacher should just let you have it earlier..end of story.

Of course! You are the parent and you are entitled to anything for your child. Does,he have a resource teacher? If so that would be her responsibility to prepare it!

 YES! That's called modification! We've modified Dillon's IEP so much that it probably has paragraph's scribbled over. Haha!

As long as the teacher has a study guide ready, they should give it to you a day ahead of time. We also have an extra social studies/science book at home! It was intended as something to avoid bringing heavy books home, but it's also helped us look things up when we really didn't understand the guide!
