Subject: New idea for your LD Cartoon Calendar

Rob, from Survivor, (y'know, godfather Rob) is sitting at an IEP meeting staring at the principal and the caption is, "Do I have "stupid" written across my forehead?"

Okay got another one,what do you guys think about this?( this actually happened at an IEP meeting last week)

The IEP team is sitting there,discussing services.
The speech therapist says,I don't think he qualifies for speech,because he can't talk..

GOD forbid we give the speech therapy to kids who have trouble talking...shouldn't this be an enrichment program for the kids who show talent in this area? Those who can't talk can have it written into their IEP that they don't need to...GRRRR!

Argh, I guess you HAVE to laugh...crying is not always useful! good one, both of you!

And SEE if ya'll came to my chat you could join in and laugh! I mean sometimes you have to laugh at the idiocy of the whole failing system.

Seriously we got into a conversation of making a calender,daily,you know like the ones you can get with Far side cartoons? All about IEP meetings.

One seriously funny one came from one of my chat buddies Mandy.

Her cartoon idea was a picture of two buses pulling up to the school. On the side of the bus is Smith Family reunion. Two people are exiting the bus and the one turns to the other and says,"finally we're gonna out number them this time!" Does this not give you a visual that makes you LAUGH?

Got to laugh,if not,what would you do with your sense of humor?

Sitting at the IEP table everyone is looking puzzled,the special ed teacher turns to the reg ed teacher and says,but have you ever had him in your class? "No "the reg ed teacher says," ,but I have taught his brother". "Okay" the special ed teacher says,"maybe no one will notice".
(Had a hard time keeping a straight face during this very real meeting)

The classic is the regular teacher telling the parent, " he could do it if he only tried harder."

AAH... very good one Helen,Osi had a similar one to this the other night.

The principal turns to the school psych and says," you mean he is STILL dyslexic?"

A true one:

It is late Auguest and a mother of a new kindergartner who is Bi-Polar expresses her concern to the principal that her son will sometimes lay down behind parked cars. The principal's solution is to put out a memo to all teachers asking them to check behind their cars before they get in. He also states that he is having a hard enough time getting a teacher to agree to take her child in her/his classroom.

FAPE, I don't think so!

OKay ya'll are killing me.

What about this idea?

Since IDEA is up for reauthorization and they are asking for parents input regarding their experiences.

Everyone who has a real life IEP meeting experience such as this can submit it for the calender and we'll send it to all OSEP represenatives,the president,OCR director,hmm anyone else ??

Now this is parental input of what we go through on a dialy basis,all over this country."let's roll".
