Help! I have people at my school changing a disabled child on the bathroom floor!?
What I would do, is talk to the principal and parents, and if this continues, go to the school board because this is unacceptible. if worse comes to worse, and this is still happening, I would advise the parents to transfer their child to a different school that is equipped, more caring and careful.
1. The child’s parents
2. The school system’s superintendent
Report this both verbally and in writing..documentation is essential. Add that you have reported this before to no avail.
Not sure where this falls legally.Under IDEA the law calls for a “free and APPROPRIATE education”. THIS is FAR from appropriate. Advise the parent’s that if this is not IMMEDIATELY rectified they can ask for a Mediator (who must be unbiased, unemployed by the school system and paid for by the school) who I can ensure you will stop this behavior. I am willing to bet the minute the school system hears the word “mediator” the behavior ceases as mediators are quite costly. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen and I personally, am appalled. Good for you for not putting up with it!!!
If she has to be changed in the bathroom, she should at least have a clean rug or mat to be put under her while it is being done.
Thank you for being a responsible person in this child’s life.
and what do you mean in your class
if you are a teacher you are in charge of the child
so demand they stop what they are doing right there and then otherwise you will seek the help of police to make them stop,meantime find out who these people are exactly and who these people are employed by and Demand to speak to their superiors or bosses about their company/agency and its current “wrong” practice/policy when working with children
make it clear you dont agree with it
and whats more you arent going to just put up with it either!and inform the childs parents/guardians also
It is a VERY busy board with LOTS of knowledagble parents who can and will be glad to help!
They know IDEA law very well!!
put it on the floor for her
