How much of the time that you were in the classroom did Megan spend working with the
teacher and or the aide?
Did they say anything that made you believe that the day you visited was significantly
different from other days at school?
Was there anything that made you believe that there was anything unusual about the
day you observed?
So, if this is the usual school day for Megan it would be safe to assume that she might
get about 1/2 hour of actual instruction per six hour day of school?
This would then add up to about 16 days of instruction per year. Would this in your
professional opinion, be FAPE?
What is going on in the classroom that is keeping Megan from learning?
Why is it, in your professional opinion, that she is having these behaviors at school,
when these behaviors have been severely reduced in other locations?
Such as dance class, ot, home, physical therapy.
How can we increase the amount of learning time for Megan to benefit from her education?
What specifically does she need that she is not getting in the classroom?
Last year the district promised to send her one to one aid for training with the ABA
company, is there a reason that hasn't been done? Why wasn't this done?
Wouldn't it have made sense to do this while she was out and in HHI?
Again, I did not ask all of these questions, but having them ready prepared me for a very difficult
meeting. I recommend having this sort of thing ready, even if you don't use any of it, it will
prepare you to keep the meeting focused where you want the focus to be.
