We have it set up that he takes breaks during the day to see another teacher in a quieter room. This is the first I have had to deal with any of this-my son has only had very minor issues in the past. Now they want to meet to… read more

Education setting

So my son is in the 2nd grade and has been having a lot of issues with his current placement (mixed special ed class). He also has a one on one district aid with no prior experience ( I am currently dealing with requesting a non public aid with experience ). It's been over 4 months where his behavior and non structured setting has gotten in the way of him receiving any type of education.

What have you found effective for educating the regular ed. educators?

What do you do when you can't get the regular ed teachers to 'get it'? I *am* a public school teacher, and I find myself appalled at the lack of interest or empathy from the core subject teachers.

My approaches have… read more
