My DD is having trouble writing down stuff from the board. Examples: spelling words, what pages are for homework, etc. She is in immersion so all of this is in French. It is absolutely affecting her academically, and, even more importantly, I do think she needs to learn to advocate for herself when something is not working.
I have suggested talking to the teacher or having me talk to the teacher about it - but she is adamant that I/she will not talk to the teacher. She does not want to make a fuss, stand out, etc. She also thinks it will not work. She maintains she is not the only one having this problem - it is a classroom issue. She thinks the teacher will then want to "talk to her about it", and not necessarily in a positive way, if she points out that things are not left on the board long enough
She has an IEP for giftedness, but also for writing processing issues. She is supposed to be given more time than others to write stuff down. I feel like I could force the issue due to her IEP if need be - but I really do not want to do so without my DD's OK.
What would you do? Would you intervene on a 12 yr olds behalf if they did not want you to, but you felt intervention was in order?
