IEP goals

‘The teacher said, ‘Your son is unteachable. He is the most autistic child in the group.’ It wasn’t true. He just needed someone to care.’: Special needs mom pulls son out of school after neglect, ‘He now gleefully puts on his backpack’

“They lost my son due to lack of supervision. When he was having a hard time, they placed him in a corner and punished him by not allowing him to do fun group activities. They simply didn’t want to be bothered. After only two months, I pulled my son out of Kindergarten. He just needed someone to care.”

‘My ears got hot, my blood was boiling. I took a screen shot of his soul-crushing report card. My mommy instinct was pissed.’: Mom appalled by son with Down syndrome’s report card, ‘Stay angry. Keep fighting for your child.’

“The envelope showed up in Judah’s backpack. I wasn’t expecting his report card, but I was eager to see how the goals we put in place manifested themselves. Imagine my surprise when that paper was littered with the lowest scores possible. My stomach lurched. My logical brain understood, but my mommy instinct was still pissed. Imagine how this little boy will feel when he understands what those 1’s will signify?!”
