My 4th grader

My 4th grader is in a immersion program.  She has been learning a 2nd language (french 100%) since Kinder.  They introduced english (50/50)  into the program in the 3rd grade.  I now have the school telling me that she is 2 grade level behind in english.  They also believe she has a learning disability.  She is currently undergoing assessments for a IEP. This whole thing doesn't set well with me.  I am confused on what to do.  I have to fight for my child's education as well as being label 'special education' student.  I need advise.  What is the typical stand for this?

Hey motherjazz,


Welcome to the boards.  Hopefully, your daughter's school will be able to help you with a lot of your questions.


We also have a lot of good information about special education, so check out these articles---they should help you.
