My kids go to Charter school. I've spoken to a Reading support teacher, she told me an interesting fact about our school: If a student has an IEP, their reading needs would be addressed by the Learning Support teacher. If a student is a struggling reader, and they do not have an IEP, their needs can be addressed by the Reading Specialist (assuming they qualify for the program). I can only guess about the home district that I work for. Looking at how poorly kids with special needs read, I can only assume that this is probably the case in our district as well. Should find out I'm curious whether this is the case in other districts?
