I wish it had been that simple here. Our school district has extremely shallow pockets, being so tiny, so they require an IEP before issuing hardware. Apparently they have fewer than two dozen laptops district-wide, with only three of them issued to students (most go to administrators and itinerant teachers). Like I said ... tiny district. So anyway, with the IEP comes additional funding, which then pays for the hardware purchase, which then goes to the student. My ds will finish his evaluation in November, with a possible IEP in place by the end of January. With luck, they might be able to get him a computer by February.

 

Has he written any tests with the computer yet? Any self-consciousness? My ds jokingly refers to himself as "the dude who doesn't DO pens." His friends seem to think it's all quirky-cool.

Nope - the conversation was had last week - he has not had to write tests yet.  He is also being given more time to write tests, although I do not think that is necessary.
