Teachers just don’t get it!

Today I had a 2nd meeting with my youngest teachers. Seems he is having most trouble in English and finishing his work then turning things in.

Ok, so let me back up a bit so you understand better.

My youngest was diagnosed (dx’d) with Asperger’s, OCD, Anxiety, Phobia disorders, TIC’s, Simple Tremors, Petit Mal Seizure’s, Sensory Processing Disorder’s and ADHD. He has an IEP in place and receives services as well as use of a calculator in math and full use of a laptop so he doesn’t have to write. Writing is very difficult for him as well as doing some every day tasks like buttoning pants or shirts. He still has issues bathing and brushing teeth.

Only one teacher is complaining about his work, keeping him on task, his homework, completing his classwork on time, keeping his attention, etc…and it’s his ELA teacher that is complaining the most. ELA, if you don’t know is English Language Arts. In 6th grade they are doing high school work, he seems to understand and able to keep up but that’s not the problem. I believe the main issue he is having is the fact she is demanding too much at once from him and he is getting too over whelmed with it and he shuts down. But getting her to get it is proving to be a challenge!
