Student needs additional help
One day during my internship I was asked to assist a student with an independent math assignment. This student is not on an IEP or a 504 but I think he really needs one. As he completed his work he needed subtle reminders to show his work, write a little neater, and to label. I would look at his answers and they were correct, they were just a little messy. I could see his wheels turning and I knew he knew what to do and how to do it, he just had a hard time putting it on paper. I would ask him to tell me how he got the answer, it was usually a great strategy and showed me he knew what he was doing so I would tell him to write that down to make it evident for grading. My CT said his score on this assignment was pretty high and did not match what he usually accomplishes. I think he needs additional help and guidance and should be on an IEP or 504 but I don't think any action is being taken to do this. This boy is smart but he is often thrown to the wayside because he is a small behavior problem. I hate witnessing this and I wish he was given a fair chance.

I would talk to your CT and explain to her what you feel would be best for the student. Maybe even offer some one on one time with the student yourself if you are available.

Calling attention to the problem with the CT is a good solution. If they are not going to make the call on their own, it may be up to you to act in the best interest of the student and push for an intervention.

I would work with this students more. I would try to work with him more one on one when I am there and collect data on him. I would collect his scores on things when you are helping him and when you are not there. Once I feel as though I have sufficient data, I would bring it to my CT and have a conversation about getting this student on either an IEP or 504. If the CT still does not see it, then I would bring it to his other teachers or to guidance. This way someone else could come in and evaluate this student.

I would start by talking to your CT about how you feel. There may be some things you don't know about the student and their previous schooling history. It is always a good idea to express your feelings and to try to understand the entire situation before taking matters further. If you don't want to talk to your CT then I would just do my best to continue helping the student in any way that you can.

I would always start with your CT it's her classroom and you are nobody to try to under mind her. There may be somethings you don't know about the student and, and just because they don't have an IEP of 504 does not mean that a student does not have a problem. Don't fall in to the trap of trying to say who needs an IEP or a 504, leave that up to the professionals that make those decisions. It is always a good idea to ask questions so that you can understand the entire situation before taking matters further.

I would explain to your CT your experience with the student and offer possible bullet points that could be added to an IEP or 504.

I would approach the child and give him some information on IEPs and 504s to give to his parents and try to set up a meeting with the teacher and parent. I would also explain that behavioral problems can sometimes be solves by giving the student proper instruction and attention.
