But just as important to academics – and I would say more important – is his social and emotional life at school and at home, so you are right to be concerned. With almost every choice in life, there are pros and cons. Aside from what the experts think, I’m interested in what your gut says. The IEP covers your son’s schoolwork, but there should be a social / emotional section that explains how to help him with disruptive behavior in the classroom. Teachers juggle so much, especially now, but there are little ways to help your son stay focused on his task. The less he disturbs, the more confident he feels. The more confident he feels, the more likely he is to make friends and get along with his classmates.
