            1. Imagine people working with your child who don’t ever read the IEP and data on your child. For an autistic child, there are probably triggers that can lead to a melt down. If the IEP is read, these triggers can be minimized and your child is supported. However, if you have staff that doesn’t take the time to read the IEP or understand your child – both the child and the teacher keep hitting a brick wall that leads to meltdowns, punishments, and your child cannot learn. It defeats the purpose and the time of developing an IEP. The teacher is frustrated, the other kids in the program may be effected, and above all the child with a disability is not served and faces stigmatizing punishment from a school that doesn’t understand his/her needs.

              The treatment from the staff is just the tip of the iceberg. Other students pick up on the classroom comments and teacher frustrations and the Special Needs children are alienated from the general education population.

              This is Hoover Middle School.

            2. The Bridge program is overly harsh and punitive. They use a one size fits all behavioral level system that is not effective with most kids. Many parents pull their kids out and homeschool in desperation after their kids deteriorate. There is no real social skills training.

            3. The School Administration and the people in Special Education are either poorly trained, or incompetent, or just flat out don’t care about Special Needs kids. If you have a choice, go somewhere else. Kids are subjected to mistreatment by staff and kids at school. Some of the worst years in public education for my child.

            4. My child reported that the her aid at Hoover gave her the answers so she could pass. Passing report card grades mean nothing and I questioned why standardized testing didn’t show ample progress. When questioned at IEP meetings, staff said they didn’t know what the significance of the low scores was even though they showed my child was failing to make progress.

              We have been nothing but impressed with the Bridge program. We evaluated several private and other MCPS public options and have found the team there to be extremely collaborative and willing to work closely with you to meet the needs of your child, including making changes to academic courses mid year and adjusting supports. We are in a mix of mainstream and self-contained classrooms with rigorous curriculum and our child is performing at the highest levels this year.

            6. When we looked at Hoover bridge 5 years ago, we did not like it for our child. It was unruly and chaotic. They had their own corridor of the school that they rarely left. That was just one morning of one day, so take that FWIW.

              1. I toured the program too and thought the exact same thing: unruly and chaotic!! And yes, I didn’t
                like the corridor that was closed off from everything else.

            7. I am curious to find out what blog system you happen to be utilizing?
              I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest blog and I would like to find something more secure.
              Do you have any suggestions?

            8. Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce a really
              good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t manage to get
              anything done.

            9. Greetings! Very helpful advice within this post!

              It is the little changes that produce the greatest changes.

              Thanks a lot for sharing!

            28. Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am a blogger, and I
              was wanting to know your situation; many of us have created
              some nice methods and we are looking to swap solutions with
              other folks, please shoot me an email if interested.

            29. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
              Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

              But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
              better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
              Maybe you could space it out better?

            30. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment
              is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
              Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
              Thanks!
