Hello, I came across this forum while looking for ways to help a student and I'm hoping someone might have some ideas or experience. I'm a high school science teacher, but found out recently one of my ninth graders starting school this week is functionally illiterate. He's been on an IEP for years and no one knows why he can't read, except that he seems to have no retention for it. His family is very supportive and involved, but even the special ed program is starting to think it's time to move on from learning to read to basic survival skills. The problem is, I'm still expected to teach him physical science, and next year, biology. I work at a very small school that has only one special ed person to service the entire high school. She can only meet with him once per day and I am expected to meet all of his accommodations on my own. We have no classroom aides, no personal aides, no real resource room, etc. Does anyone have ideas on how I can help this person learn this year?
