I need professional help. : ) Ok, this is my second year of sped teaching, so I am still learning. I feel I am being taken advantage of, because I am still new to this. Long story short, there is a deaf boy. His gen ed teacher is complaining about him because she says that he is scoring really low in everything in her class. His hearing impaired teacher has said that there is a rule/law where students under the category of HI can be serviced by anyone ( not sure if this is true but my principal is asking me to service him) .... so they are trying to put him in my class ( LD) . I was apprehensive, because I know that sped students have to go through eligibility to qualify for sped services, however there was no eligibility for this boy. Honestly, I feel that the gen ed teacher doesn't want him in her class anymore because he has an interpreter. The interpreter is a jerk and complains a lot... and the teacher just doesn't want to work with the interpreter so she is pushing him into LD. Can they do this?
