IEP Ending

IEP Ending

Hello Everyone,
I had a meeting last week for my kindergartener and the IEP team is telling me there ending her IEP for next year. Which means no speech, OT, or aide. The problem is I don’t think my child is quite ready since there is some behaviors still going on in class and also has to be redirected throughout the day. The IEP team is suggesting a 504 for next year. Should I be worried? Any families going through something similar?

@Monica27- I agree it's too soon.This is why you need an outside person like an Educational Advocate.

I'm not familiar w/ 504 but both of my kids had IEPs and what I liked about them was the supports you can place on them. Did you find out what a 504 is and the differences between the IEP and a 504 is ? If you did and feel the IEP is what you want,you'll need to bring in an Educational Advocate and call another meeting. The Educational Advocate will know which one is better and what you need to do to stay with the IEP. They don't cost anything and you can find one through the Autism Society-autismsociety.org

The school says my daughter no longer qualifies for the IEP because her autism at this time is not impacting her academics. Which means no more supports outside of classroom. The 504 is accommodations in the classroom which I won’t know what they will be until the beginning of next school year. I just feel like its to soon since she will be going to 1st grade.

My son's IEP had never ended but services that I thought he could use like OT for instance were put on consult instead of a regular basis. It seems to me like sometimes they try to do less than they should....
