I have a student in class who is in a wheelchair and has a one-to-one aide all day. She is integrated into general education classes, including my inclusion language arts class. We have a block class, and this student's aide leaves for half of the block because it's the only time she can have lunch. That leaves the student without an aide for half of a writing intensive class. Now, I co-teach so theoretically one of us could help this student while the other teaches. But that is shortchanging the whole class in general. If I'm working exclusively with this student, I'm not available for my other students who have special needs. Also, I'm not an aide. I don't have the training on this student's specific needs. Even though I spent a few years working with kids in wheelchairs, if she needed to use the restroom, I don't know if it would be appropriate for me to change her...and honestly, I'm probably very out of practice even if I were expected to do that. I'm just wondering if there is some sort of legality issue with leaving her "alone" for half of the block. I plan to bring this up to my P, but I wanted some "ammo" in case she is reluctant to change this.
