What is your opinion and experience with Special Ed? My daughter is behind in math and the teacher wants to test her for a learning disability. She has a normal IQ but struggles in Math? I told the teacher I'll get a tutor but they are really pusHong this IEP program. What is your experience.

Iep is just a legal document dictating what has to be offered to your child, it doesn't mean your kid will be in special ed classes

My daughter has a low IQ. Her IEP is evaluated annually and she takes the STAAR ALT. It never hurts to let your child be evaluated.

I.E.P is not specifically just a special ED class

Go for it. I got my son tested after teachers noticed him struggling. We found out he has a learning disability. Having that IEP in place qualifies my son for additional help and accomadations to help him. He has improved so much since it was put in place.

My son has a iep. He has really great scores in his academies but his social skills are bad. He get 3 extra classes a week to help with his social skills as part of the iep. And he loves the extra time with teachers.

I wish they were pushing for IEP's at our school.  Instead the school doesn't follow them because of budget cuts and the parents end up homeschooling.  My son currently has an IFSP but will be getting an IEP  for kindergarten this fall.  It makes it so the school supposedly has to follow what is in the IEP to help the child learn and progress.

They won't do an IEP for my son because he has a 504 (which is just something stating that he needs his diaper changed during school hours). Ugh imma hate this fight with the school board
