Wondering how to get your child the Special Education Resources they Need and Deserve?
I’ve been attending IEP’s for my Son, Matthew for over 16 years now. My burning question has always been, what happens when what your child needs runs up against lack of funds and staff? The underlying, unspoken attitude from Special Education Administrators has often been, I believe, that Matthew is higher functioning so they don’t want to expend resources on him when budgets and staff are stretched beyond the breaking point. I frequently felt that more could be done to support him but didn’t know how to break through the barriers to get him a piece of the precious and much-in-demand pie.
In this interview, Peggy Bud explains how to gather evidence that your child needs additional or different services. She also explains what the “Present Level of Performance” is really all about and how to use it to get the services your child deserves.
My favorite idea for gathering info and support is to form a Special Ed PTA. Wow, wish I had this idea back when Matthew was younger!
