tribemama Posted January 12, 2011 Share Posted January 12, 2011 Hi Everyone, I have a special needs child (well, I personally labeled him that - he does not have an IEP or anything.) He has never been to school, just homeschooled. It is growing increasingly harder to homeschool. He was always very difficult but it seems he is having more and more behavioral problems or outburst. He is 9 almost 10 (4th grade). He reads at about 1st grade level and math is about the same. I believe my husband and I are at our limits of what we can do. Anyway, I would like to transition him to PS but I'm not sure how to go about doing it. He is enrolled in a charter school but like I said he does not have an IEP. He has only recently met with a "reading specialist" and was given special reading curriculum. He has extreme behavioral issues that has pushed me to my limits. Do I just go into the school and say he should be in 4th grade but that's not where he's at? Do I try to explain anything? Will they know where to place him? Hoping someone else might have some words of wisdom or similar experience. Sorry if I posted in the wrong area - Thanks, Tribemama Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
