We have had an IEP for our 10-year-old son, in 4th grade, for several years, but are wondering if there are things that we should include that we aren't aware of. He gets a bit of time in speech, took out OT, which was mostly for handwriting (handwriting is still terrible). It seemed better for awhile, and since they say he is "capable" of good handwriting there is no need to include it. He gets 30 minutes at the end of the day in the resource room to finish work, and can go out during the day as needed, also where timeouts are. He is able to use a computer for most of his writing work. Those are the main things. I guess I'm wondering what else can be offered to help. He is back on a behavior card, was doing ok without for awhile and this years teacher wasn't too keen on it. He has good days and bad days with it, whereas when we first started it a couple years ago it was like gold! We are adjusting meds, so I think it's partly due to that, but he has trouble focusing, wants to talk, has more meltdowns and lower frustration tolerance than in the past year or two. I know 4th grade is harder and I know the goal is to be to get him in as much normal classroom time as possible and not to "baby" him so how do we do that? He brings home way too much homework some days. Hardly ever a day that he doesn't have something. Wondering also what OT services other schools have available to help with attention? Is there a list of things available for IEPs? The teachers always say he is "capable" of more. Just frustrated right now. Friday wasn't a good day, and I felt like the resource teacher was frustrated too, haven't heard back from her yet. He is terribly bored with school work. How can they make it interesting for him and how much do you cater to their needs, for instance he is very hands on. Loves legos, paper crafts, etc., very creative. So how do you implement that into his learning? Thanks for any suggestions you might have.
