He's in 1st grade. He's had an IEP since he entered the school system at age 3. That was in Ohio. We moved back to Texas before the start of Kindergarten. He did receive a full evaluation through the school at that time. Right now, there's not much there with regards to LA, or any other classes. He has that he gets extra time, and can have assistance with written work when needed. Besides the testing accommodations, what other goals would you suggest, at least as a starting point for us to look at?

What grade is Sam in? I'm assuming he had a full evaluation last year before that ARD meeting? What is in his IEP now? Are there specific interventions to help him progress in LA? Concerning the meeting, make sure you document what happened...and then write a letter requesting a meeting without undue delay. I really don't understand why, after the meeting, whatever it was called, that included you, a school administrator, classroom teacher, and resource teacher, the testing accomodation couldn't be added to the IEP. As long as you consent to the diagn. to be excused, it should've been ok. Going back though, there needs to be specific goals/ interventions to help him progress in LA, rather than just testing accomodations.
