learning disabilities advice - May 23rd 2014, 03:52 PM

Hello, I am currently a student in High School. Throughout the entirety of my education I've had an IEP. Involving auditory and sensory motor disabilities. Around three years ago, when I was in 8th grade, I had my last IEP meeting, or so I believe. If I recall correctly the intent of that meeting was to exit me from the special education that I received. To my knowledge that is what the meeting was about. I say that as, I at that time did not understand anything off those papers, and I can't find the IEP paper right now, so I can't read it. I am not entirely sure that was an exit order, as when moving into 9th grade in the very first week I was in RSP again. I talked to my resource teacher, assured her it was a mistake and the following week I was out. So fast forward three years. I am now a junior, with three weeks into the end of school. I have to say, it's been a terrible year academically. At the moment all my class are c's, with two, AP Biology and Algebra II, begin a F. I am terrified at the moment of "relapsing" I don't know what to do. I keep catching my self just '"shutting off" every time a teacher (especially in math) is trying to explain something. My writing of course is still crap, I write to small, all my teachers complain about that, but in my defense it's better I write small and clearer, then bigger and unlegible. But off that tangent, this year has been difficult to say the least. I've thought about talking to the resource teacher as one of my friends recommended, but I can not drag my self into stepping into her office. I tried that, and completely froze and backed off. All these thought of me exaggerating came to mind. I mean I am out, so that means the 'people' believed I should be fine and meeting standers of my grade level (At least that's how I believe it works, if anyone cares to enlighten me). So by that logic I should be fine, right? What should I do? I've been telling my self I'll get better grades, but clearly second semester has been the exact same story from first and I did not improve. So what now, am I exaggerating? Should I seek advice from the resource teacher, or should I tell some other staff member, maybe my principle. I don't know. If I do what will happen? Honestly, anything will help I just need some advice of what is a good move. Thank you in advance.

I had IEPs too. I was exited out of it then I was reentered because I was having such a hard time. I also have to write small in order for it to be readable and some people hate it but if that's what you need to do then do it. I think if you are struggling a lot then you should talk to your parents and tell them that your having a hard time and then talk to the resource teacher and see what she says. I think if your having trouble with AP classes that you shouldn't take them next year but if you do want to that is totally up to you.

I hope this helped a little. Anymore questions feel free to PM/VM me anytime

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.
