Victor Returns to School
After successfully transitioning from a developmental center to community placement, Victor began attending a county special education high school transition program in accordance with the goals in his IEP. Victor initially did very well in his new program. However, following the school winter break, he experienced an illness and an increase in his aggressive behaviors. Victor had an inadequate school behavior plan, and as a result wound up missing months of school. OCRA represented Victor at a series of IEP meetings and requested additional assessments. Following a detailed transition plan designed to provide Victor with autonomy in making his own decisions to participate in the program, Victor returned to his transition program on a partial day basis. All of Victor’s IEP team members are now more confident about his full participation once school resumes in the fall.
