ESSEX COUNTY - SPECIAL EDUCATION

AG is an 8-yr-old 3rd-grader who has been diagnosed with ADHD. Her IEP provided for minimal services (i.e. one period per day of in-class support in both math and language arts literacy). Last year, the district offered 20 hours of compensatory education services to make up for a delay in evaluating AG and failing to implement her IEP during the first half of the school year. However, AG’s mother, JG, learned through the vice principal that, even while providing compensatory services to AG, the district was not regularly implementing AG’s minimal IEP services. JG is seeking independent evaluations, documentation of IEP implementation, and/or increased services, plus compensatory services as appropriate.
