Pushing The Envelope

Last Wednesday my husband attended a presentation by an attorney specializing in rights in education for the disabled. I had mentioned that this event was forthcoming in the blog on January 7.

In any event, the talk was very good and my husband introduced himself to the speaker at the end of the discussion and shared some of our travails at my son’s college, and the grade he received in his State Tech class. Even hearing just the briefest background, the attorney was very clear that we should pursue this. He said that the professor was aware of the learning disability and therefore should have made some kind of adaptation in the sewing assignment and testing.

So readers, is it “His Call” (1/26/10) or is this a point where a parent steps in, regardless of the student’s age?
