What if a child forgets to go to intervention?
I have a 6th grader (still elementary here) who is supposed to get writing help once a week and speech therapy twice a week. This is all per his IEP.
I just found out that he has only seen the writing instructor twice out of the last seven weeks. She claims she reminded him to come in the morning, but he never did, so apparently she just left it at that. When I found this out, I checked with the speech pathologist. SHe said he had only missed speech "once or twice."
Of course I am furious. Even if my kid wasn't at the second percentile for short-term memory (which he is), I would think someone could call the classroom and tell a kid to get where he needs to go. And I would think that someone would think that missing IEP interventions would be important enough to to email parents about.
That being said-- I am wondering how other schools and districts handles these pull-out interventions. Do you expect kids to just go and come when they need to? What if they forget? And at what point are parents notified if kids do not show up for their sessions?
