Reading intervention

My first grade son goes to a class for reading intervention with a bunch of other kids as part of EIP. He also goes to a reading coach once a week through the school. We also have a tutor at home 2 times a week. Today I get a letter that he will be getting one on one tutoring 30 min a day. Doesn't this sound a little excessive? I just think its a lot for him to go back and forth with that many different teachers. Any thought?

i guess it would depend on the need.  Is the tutor a recommendation?  Or is it on your own?  Do you have a plan with the teacher to improve his reading so you guys are on the same page?

No it a recommendation of the school.

No it a recommendation of the school.

It does seem like a lot so I guess I would just sit down with the staff at the school and talk about what each area of help will do and why.

Yep. One or two teachers is fine but it's getting a little ridiculous IMO.

Hey,

You know, as I was reading this, I thought the same thing.  He's here there and everywhere LOL.  I would speak to his teacher about the subject since she's probably most aware of his entire situation, tutoring, etc. she can help you determine from experience what may be best.  Does he have someone there that handles his IEP aside from his teacher?  Perhaps speak with her as well.

Good luck :)

I would talk to the teacher but if the school was offering more help, I probably wouldn't say no.

The more people surrounding your child to help him read the better.
It's not going to harm him to read with lots of people. If he needs it, let him recieve the help.

I agreed with the comments made by in this post. Honestly I think it is great that your son is getting extra help that he needs . I would ask the teacher if your son can have either one on one tutoring or the reading group with coach.  Set up a meeting with the teacher and create a program that will be easy for your child or less excessive.

Do you have pets at home? Have you tried letting him read to your pet in a relaxed manner? Sometimes jut having non-judgmental company can help a child relax and they improve in leaps and bounds.

I would say it depends on how DS reacts to all of the special help. Is it helping? or bringing down his confidence in himself?

To me he doesn't seem to mind. In my eyes he was improving but not in the IEP teachers eyes. I just don't know it seems like a lot of effort for little results.
