I often will help parents coordinate a potty training program between home/school.  If the child is receiving special education services, I assist parents in creating the plan and having it implemented through the IEP.  



You cannot change your child’s placement until you have built a strong, accountable, and appropriate IEP. Once an appropriate IEP is constructed, negotiations for placement (where the IEP will be implemented) are much more effective.

Many times parents know in their gut the current placement isn’t working.

Recreating the foundation of your child’s education (IEP) and holding the team accountable for progress will set the path for a change in placement based on facts vs feelings.
