Totally Unaware
Mrs. Doss teaches a fourth grade ELA class. The class is a mixture of special education students, EIP students, and regular education students. There is a co-teacher in the class during reading time. There is one student who up to last year was in a self contained special education classroom and was assessed with GAA. The student can't read and writes barely legibly. He consistently disrupts the class. Mrs. Doss has found that he hasn't passed any of the assessments even with a accommodations.
what can Mrs. Doss do to help this student?

If the accommodations Mrs. Doss is trying to implement are not being effective, then Mrs. Doss needs to speak with her assistant principal to further determine where to go in the RTI process with this student. Before going to the assistant principal, Mrs. Doss needs to make sure she has documentation of the intervention strategies used, any benchmark/progress monitoring results for this student, and notes from any meetings where this student was discussed with her grade level. Current grades would be a big help also. Other ways Mrs Doss can help this student is by going back to the basics. She can use a primer reading intervention program with this student during I/E, or she can borrow a kindergarten reading book from the librarian. Some great online programs to promote reading development are Reading Eggs and RazKids. Mrs. Doss can help this student write by going back to the basics of writing. She can focus on forming letters, then words, and then writing complete sentences.

I agree with this solution and the student needs to be exposed to the basics.

Mrs. Doss needs to help this student feel successful. This student probably already feels out of place. You need to call an IEP meeting and come up with in the classroom accommodations to help this child.

I do not agree. The post already stated that accomedations have been made with no positive result. Going back to basics is needed.

I agree with this solution. The teacher also needs to document before having a meeting.

Maybe Mrs. Doss and the co-teacher can find books and writing topics that the student likes. This may help with his disruptions. There is also an online reading program called Lexia that may be helpful for this student.
