Some schools resist push-in services because they worry about interruptions in the classroom. Carrie W commented during our live event, “Ugh, scheduling is always the wall my district would put up for push in.” Evy A said, “I’m definitely for push-in services, but I always get pushback and excuses and conflicting schedules to not provide push-in services.”
Alison S shared, “Principals can play a big role coordinating service providers’ schedules with a view to the push-in needs.” If you’re having a hard time convincing your IEP team to implement push-in services, getting the principal on your side could be a huge step in the right direction!
Check out the clip below for Dr. Solone’s suggestions and examples for how parents can advocate for push-in services that help their child learn with fewer disruptions to their schedule.
