It’s October and you have volunteered to help your second grader’s art teacher with a special seasonal project that requires additional adult supervision. Your child’s class comes in and takes their seats without incident. The art tables are arranged in a U shape facing the front of the room with two students per table, but you notice that your child is sitting at a separate desk at the back of the room. You resist the urge to ask about that. . .and begin helping the students with their projects. As you ease around to the back of the room, you greet your child and casually ask, “hey buddy! Why are you sitting back here by yourself and away from everyone?” Your child replies, “I dunno, Mom. My teacher just said this is where I have to sit. I’ve been sitting here since the first week.” You bite your tongue until the class leaves and as you’re waiting for the next group to arrive, you ask the art teacher about this. She replies that she’s simply following your child’s IEP which states she requires “preferential seating” due to her ADHD diagnosis.
