I haven't taught for that long at the high school level (mostly at the college level), so I have not had many students with IEPs earlier in my career. This semester, I have a couple students with IEPs. Both of the students seem confused about what is stated in their IEPs, and I would like to show them their IEPs to straighten out their confusions. I foresee a couple possible problems, however. 1. The junior boy with an IEP has more significant restrictions and modifications in his plan. The doctor who diagnosed him wrote about how he has anger management difficulties and can be easily distracted and angered. Would this type of description be too off-putting or even traumatizing to the junior boy to hear? He is easily angered, so I think the doctor is right about that problem. 2. In the junior boy's IEP, the doctor also recommends that he be given breaks during his classes since he cannot concentrate. The boy already takes 2-4 breaks per class, and I am trying to bring his breaks down to 1 per class. The doctor in the IEP does not specify how many breaks the boy is allowed. Will this ambiguity give the boy ideas that he can take as many breaks as he wants? 3. The sophomore girl has a more mildly worded IEP and I would like to show her her plan since she thinks there is some language in the IEP that is not there. But she and the junior boy are friends, so if I show her her IEP, he will likely find out and ask to see his own IEP. I am not sure I should show the junior boy his IEP for the reasons I mentioned in 1 and 2.
