Subject: How I follow the IEP!

I am a teacher - I teach 180 students a day and have 24 LD students mainstreamed into my classroom. I have a code marked in my grade book who gets special help so I wont forget. I am the only one who knows these codes. On Friday, I make up a grid sheet of all the assignments for the following week and staple all their papers to it for the next week and give it to the student to take home.I allow them a week and 2 days to get in the work. On the following friday - I take up the packet and take out what has not been done and allow them until tuesday of the next week to get the material done and in to me. This takes some time - but I can usually do it at the end of class - I just skin through the pkt, tear out what is not done - and add it to the other packet- on top of the grid sheet- so they know what is due tuesday and what is due friday. The student hands in the entire packet to me on friday stapeled. My son is ADD and LD so maybe I go out of my way a little for these kids - but at least it helps the parents know what is done, not done, and what is coming up. The r esource teacher helps with this too, making sure everything is done - sometimes they just put the packet in my mailbox - that makes it very easy for me or have the student bring it to my room during resource time.

I also work with chihdren with ld and adhd. I teach kindergarten and feel very strongly that communication with parents is a must. It is also very important for these children to know what is expected and know the routine on a daily basis. I feel the children usually have problems being organized and this is a must to help them be successful.

It seems that not only do you make sure you follow the student's IEPs, but you make a point to understand and respect the students with disabilities in your classes. As a special ed. teacher I feel it is crucial for the gen. and spec. ed. techers to work together. Keep up the good work!

I think what you're doing is great! I am special ed teacher and a parent of a child with ADD. I often find that I treat my students the way I WISH all the teachers treated my son!
