What to tell school I want..

I am setting up a meeting with my son's teachers in a week to go over what we feel he needs help with in his classes.  I also mentioned to the principal about getting a 504 set up.  My son is in 6th grade and was diagnosed with PDD-NOS and Anxiety.

What kind of things should I talk to them about and tell them we want?  I need the teachers to keep me updated on what he is working on/homework etc. so I can keep him up on things. 

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

Debi

How did the meeting go with the school?

What type of program did you set up?

Thanks for your reply. We are meeting next Wed. with the principal and teachers. My son needs help with organizational skills so hoping they can help with that. Also I need to know what he has due each night. He is in 6th grade and has several teachers so I am not sure how this will all work out.

I was just talking about the homework situation with someone yesterday.  We decided that my son will go to his learning support teacher's room at the end of every day so that she can make sure all of his homework is written legibly in his planner, and that he has all of his homework in the correct folders in his bag before he comes home.  Then I have a chance of knowing what he should be doing.  Up until now he has come home with random chicken scratch scribbled in his planner.  He couldn't remember what it said, and there was no way I was going to be able to decipher it.  His homework was usually just crumpled up in the bottom of his bag.  I hope this new plan works.

The other thing that was suggested to me is to take a day to sit in on his school day.  Then I will understand a little better the organizational system that the teacher uses, and how he reacts to her teaching style, etc.  I think this will shed a lot of light on some of the confusion I have about what is expected of him and what he needs.
