hi everyone.i have a 11yr old aspergers kid. i feel like im constantly fighting for her.her education,her health,it just doesnt stop. im starting to see that she may be a big part of the problem.she shuts down and doesnt want to do her school work,homework,nothing.i fight for her IEP>to be followed,for the bullying to stop.and all i get is resistance from the teachers from her.its actually starting to cause problems in my outside relationships,its like im constently in mama bear mode,she can be in a great mood untill we get to school then everything changes,the mouth starts the pissy mood.then she goes into shut down mode because she doesnt want to do the work.the teachers say shes going to pass,i dont know how with her grades,i think its because they dont want to deal with her next year.i dont feel she knows enough to pass,they say shes capable of doing the work,i dont see it,it takes hours to get her to do her homework when i can get her to do it.most of the time she wont.she gets bullied alot but its come to light that she says some really dumb things and will egg it on then cry about it when the other kids get mad.i dont know what im fighting for anymore,how can i help her if she wont even try  to help herself.

Is there an organization called 'Teambuilders' in your area. If so, they may be able to help quite a bit.

They are doing something illegal by not following their IEP. I liken it to how would they feel if their teacher contract was not being honored by the school district. I bet they would fight it. You need to remind them that they can be held liable for not following the IEP. You need to complain in writing to the superintendent, distict Special Education Director, and the principal about what is happening. Also, you can send any good or bad comments about a teacher in writing to the school district personnel office, and it can hurt them if they do not have tenure. You need to bring an advocate into the situation, and you can find one through http://www.thearc.org/. I recommend reading to learn about your rights: http://www.wrightslaw.com/, http://www.ldonline.org/, http://www.chadd.org/, http://www.aspergersyndrome.org/, http://www.autismspeaks.org/, and http://www.autism-society.org/.
