We have my 12 year old son's annual IEP meeting on Friday. He started middle school this year and went to a new school where he didn't know anyone. I was most nervous about him making a friend and growing academically. Turns out, he has had lunch detention 4 times for yelling out inapprorpiate language, or saying something rude. We are on the verge of lunch detention, then suspension. His IEP goals are in writing, communication, and social emotional awareness. I'm not saying that he shouldn't have consequences for his inappropriateness but, I just wonder a little bit about it. He is also struggling academically. I have learned a great deal being apart of the defense mode class and reading some of the articles on this site. Thank you! Any advise or things I should ask or consider at the meeting would be helpful. Thank you!
