When the Teacher Can't Help
Classroom teachers often have their hands full and may not always be able to be your partner in attending to your child's special needs. If that's the case, look for someone else in the school to enlist like a guidance counselor, a media or art teacher, a nurse, an administrator, or even a very concerned enrichment teacher.
Ask for an evaluation
If your child's teacher is unwilling or unable to provide accommodations, request a meeting with school administrators to state your concerns and ask that your child be formally evaluated. By law, the school has 60 days to evaluate the child and draw up a plan on how to help.
In the worst-case scenario where this doesn't happen, you may request a "due process" hearing before a judge.
