No Excuse, Right...
Some of my students have IEPs that say they should have test questions read out loud to them. I know my students would benefit by having this test modification enforced. They are great verbally but there is a short circuit between their brains and the hands that hold the pencil.
I spoke to resource room teachers about the need to read to these kids. the answer I got was "We don't have the time or personnel to do this. It would be nice if we did."
What is the point of having IEPs if the things written on them are not taken seriously?
