Of course I still have mad anxiety leading up to the day of the ARD. It's kinda like going into a mediation for child custody. If you've never been then thank your lucky stars.
I'm not delusional to think that I will never have a difficult ARD again but I really do appreciate the Staff at Spring Meadows Elementary. N-Zilla and I have been blessed to have the teacher he has had this school year.
Here are some of my tips and suggestion to help with ARD's and IEP.
- Evaluation from Doc
- Transition reminders
- BIP(I would like a Behavior Plan)
- Plan in place for sub
- Visual schedule and timers
- seating arrangements for next year
- teacher recommendations for next year.
You are the main B-I of the ARD committee. Don't every forget that.
