What to expect?

This is going to be my first year having a special ed. student in my classroom. I was just wondering what to expect regarding several aspects. What does an IEP contain? Will I be involved in ARDS? Any advice that you can give is greatly appreciated! TIA!

IEPs

contain present levels of performance in all areas of specially designed instruction, goals and objectives pertaining to the SDI; accommodations; modifications; information about the parents' desire for level of involvement; possible behavior improvement plans; possibly a safety plan; information about transportation.... Remember that IEP stands for Individualized Education Program, so every IEP should be tailored to the individual student.

Sorry, I don't know what ARD is.

Yes, as his general ed teacher you will need to be at the ARD because you'll be able to talk about how the child is doing in your classroom. You can bring in classwork, report card, etc.
Um...what else. You are legally required to follow ALL aspects of the IEP and modifications.
Remember to treat the child as a normal child who just has some challenges

The students accomodations and modifications are to level the playing field and not give the student an advantage (something some people forget). Also, follow the IEP and you will now be a part of the IEP team so your input and documentation will be necessary. Treat the child like you would any other student. Collaborate with the Sped teacher. Let him/her know if something is working or not working in the classroom. Hope that all helps.

I agree with all the other posters. Just be sure to document EVERYTHING you're doing just in case questions or problems arise. You might want to keep all that student's info in a binder...that was helpful for me. Good luck!
