Hope P Posted May 25 Share Posted May 25 I'm sorry for the long post. I'm just at a loss and feel like I'm failing my highschooler if I don't take action. Which will affect their future. My child has Autism but is very high functioning, they are in an EBD (Emotional Behavioral Disorder) classroom that has a teacher that curses the students and feels like it is his job to "turn them into men" by verbally abusing them. The teacher has been reported multiple times by other parents with recorded footage of their actions. Nothing has been done. This has changed the whole trajectory of his education as we had a plan in place with Behavior supports and an ATC program to learn a trade. Due to the unstable classroom setting I want to move my son out and have requested an emergency IEP meeting to change his LRE (Least Restrictive Environment). When I requested the meeting the teacher said he would not be able to have any behavior goals if that is the case. Does anyone have any experience with moving their child out of the EBD highly structured environment and keeping behavior goals? What did you use to base your case and what do you recommend that I say to come across confident? Another teacher told my son today that he had his own opinions about the meeting so I know both EBD teachers will be in there. I will be alone as my son's behavior therapist can't reschedule a prior engagement and his dad can't get off work. Thank you in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
