I am new to this group and I am sure I will have a ton of questions. Here is a little background on my current situation....My DH and I have made up our mind that homeschooling our 8 yr DS would be more beneficial than leaving him in a special ed. class. He is not learning anything. His main issues are social and behavior. Between the time it takes for him to get to school, wait for the class to finish breakfast, transit to class and get started on assignments, he has already lost interest. His teacher calls me 2-4 times a day saying he won't do this and he won't do that. Dh and I take turns on some days to go to his class and sit with him or having to pick him up. His teacher told me hopefully he will be able to transfer back to a regular class soon o_O If she think that is going to happen anytime soon, she really doesn't know my son and what will work for him. He will not adapt to being in a large class, he can barely adapt to being in her small class. It has always been like this for him. I feel like they are passing him on to the next grade without him being on grade level and knowing the work. Has anyone taken their special needs child out of public school? How is it working for you? Any advice for pulling a child with an IEP out of public school? Do I have to cancel the IEP before I take him out?
