Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

Please consider reconvening the school team to discuss your concerns.  It would seem that what you are describing would warrant a revisit of his IEP.

I work with students with special needs, but they are 10,11,and 12 graders. First you need to find out if the instructors have training working with this type of student. It takes a special compation to work with this type of student. Some of the students' I work with have been shoved aside by teachers because of their condition which is very sad. The students sometimes have built a wall up due to abuse from others, but after working one on one with them they begin to trust you and see you are there to help them. My greatest pleasure is when they find out they can pass tests' in math,language,and reading their eye's light up and are so happy over their accoplishment.
