Inclusion or self contained

Hi every one my 6 and half going in inclusion class where hes getting help but in maths he get confuse sometimes cry in class

At IEP meeting may be they ask him to put him

back in SELF CONTAINED class ( a class where all students have disabilities) where he did kinder and he rarely got maths homework he just do writing and writing and reading)

and the number of students is very low he will get more attention but the class is very slow paced and it also lack the age appropriate behaviours or modeling of serious behavior because kids in that class lag behind in social relations and immature habits .

i also pray for them

but my son have no behaviour problems so i got INCLUSION where general ed students also study .

So what should i do please advice

is there any other option than self contained

or pull out for maths can intalk at IEP??

Self contained should be the very last resort for your child it is the Most restrictive environment. The goal is to keep children in their least restrictive environment. ADHD alone doesn't automatically mean he needs to be in a self-contained room. Even if he is diagnosed with a learning disability he can still receive services as an inclusion student. Self-contained should only be attempted If he is floundering academically and or behaviorally.

hi plzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

gimme sm advice please i m broken today

My son is in second marking period of grade 1

Today at IEP they said my child is not doing ok in inclusion they want to put him back in full time self contained where he get more attention but no social benefits and role modeling.

Teacher showed me his class work that sometimes hes lost ,

While he s passing his level tests or weeklies but failing the main curriculum in 2nd mp he passed one maths test modified .

I really dont want to push hiim back in self contained for us more than academics his social behaviour counts because in self contained all disabled kids are included and bery restrictive environment. Thats why i raised my voice and this year in first grade i got inclusion for him hes very happy there .

also he have no behaviour issues just lack of focus due to mild adhd and learning disability.

Please pleae please any bdy advice wt could i do after 2 months again meeting will be held .

Keep using that voice! I’d fight for another year of inclusion with more specifics in his IEP

A child struggling behaviorally can often succeed in a general education classroom with a Behavior Intervention Plan, which may or may not include one-on-one support by a para-professional trained to extinguish, modify or manage behaviors. These paras are often provided by a district’s SELPA and overseen by a behaviorist. The behaviorist I know who directs these paras has a undergrad in psychology and a masters in behavior. One-on-one support is less restrictive than a classroom of students with behavioral and or other challenges.
