well, Monday is my younger sons IEP meeting, after having him tested, it is clear he has an LD.

We did go to the open house that offers orton gillingham. The school sounds really good.

I guess what pisses me off the most is that his social worker and teacher told us that he probably needs this school but they always end it with "you didn't hear it from us" because it will cost the town alot of money to send my kid there.

He is 11 yrs old and doesn't know the alphabet yet and cant read, when does the school finally say "uh, we just cant teach him?"

the doctor that did the testing felt that we need to hire an attorney. The school probably wont pay for it.

Sometimes i think to myself "why cant these kids get a break"

now my older son, well, that's a whole other story. They called and the psych at school feel he is in the wrong school. That it is not an 'appropriate setting' due to his IQ being low.

I have been saying this for a while, but they just wouldn't agree with me. So now the kid is 13, and he is feeling so different then all the other kids.

I don't know, just a vent, just frustrated, not sure what we are going to do.
