Matthew is on grade level and exactly where he should be for his grade on reading (1.3 level) but the other kids in the typical class are more advanced (all above where they should be). We agreed to keep Matthew in resource for 2nd and 3rd marking period and look at things for the 4th. The team (CST agreed after pushing on my end) felt that Matthew should try typical reading with supports for the 4th marking period to transition him typical 2nd grade reading with supports. The team projects by 3rd/4th grade he can be completely serviced in mainstream.
We are making modifications to Matthew for writing. OT has him doing lined paper and he can do it. We are agreeing to start looking into him typing, etc for longer written assignments.
