    Mr. Perry,I need your help.My daughter is an IEP student her disability, extended time for testing.Small feat right? wrong.she is a senior, chemistry-pre-med major. currently @ ECU-future doctors program. disability accomadations aren't automatic as far as following the student. seemingly teachers are more willing to help a student fail then to succeed. extended time is more elementary to implement than a ramp or lift. per nc 60% of students w?iep graduate w/diploma. who keeps data after highschool? extended time is under the ADA why is it so bothersome for our teachers?
    My student wants to be a doctor sometime she has to fight so hard for "accomadation" by the tijme she studies she is exausted. Learning Dis? – ABLE!
