Is it the same now as it was say 10 yrs ago?
I was talking to another mom about how my dd(9) was moved to a different class. She was wondering why. I told her its because she has an IEP that we have been trying to get for 2 yrs. It took a medical diagnosis to get her tested though school. Both our dd's had the same teacher. Well, she was saying how bad her dd is with Math and how the teacher wanted to have a meeting with the social worker and pschycolist. She didn't want to take them up on the offer. She rather see her child repeat the 4th grade then get label special ed. By that time 2 other mothers joined the conversation telling her she should take the offer of the meeting just to see if she can get help since it took all of us such a long time to get help and they are practically offering it to her. She won't do it just because of a label.
