Rochelle’s Special Education Tips

No No No No No No No No No No

  • Whatever you do, do not advise a parent that a disabled child could benefit from tutoring during the summer. If that tutoring is not provided by the school system, it looks even worse.
  • Do not offer your services or that of another colleague to conduct tutoring.
  • Do not refuse to test a student when a parent asks for the testing of her child who is reading below grade level. Get it done now.
  • Watch out for situations where the provider of services is not a special educator during the period of time that the special educator is out on leave. At the least, have another special educator supervise the giving of services by the substitute teacher. While we know that the instructional assistant may be the best, you still need supervision by a special educator.
