: Hi Beth!
: I am assuming that your son is in a public school system. With that in mind, you should request an IEP (Individualized Education Program) conference. Let them know that you have educational concerns which you feel are not being addressed and ask them to add additional goals to your son's IEP. I have worked in education for the past 20 years and know, that as a parent, you have certain rights.
: I am also the proud parent of a five year old girl with Down Syndrome. Good luck and just know that sometimes, as a parent, you must demand
: that your child's needs are being met. Take care and God bless!
Yes,A small town public school system. We have our IEP every year.They snowball me.Its hard for me to be demanding.Im thinking about getting a private opionion on his IQ My son is 13. He go's half day middle school and half day at the high school.I think he's very smart,but of course I'm his mom
