Oh yah its teachers that are IEP friendly vs one that refused to honor it!! Last year was horrible and everytime I tried calling her out over IEP issues she either blamed DS or out right lied. By 3rd quarter I gave up. This year he is in a dual taught class with a general ed teacher and a special ed teacher. He actually even got an A first quarter and last quarter. No A this quarter but he raised a C to a B so I am very happy but really goes to show you its not only the student behind the grade or at least in my mind. I know my kid has it in him, he just has more to overcome then the average kid so just give him a chance!!

That's great news, Keep up the good work!  I agree that a lot comes down to the teachers that are actually recognizing and applying strategies and that goes for gen ed and sped teachers alike..  Sometimes the only help DD gets is when she goes to the resource room, Some gen ed teachers care but they've got a whole class of regular learners too!
