Several of teachers conners scale

learning problems/executive functioning 51,57,53,65,72 (varied levels of conern
defiance/aggression no concern

You can always delay the meeting until you’re more prepared and understand these ratings a little bit better. If you have outside counselor, consider sharing these numbers and coming up with a plan before you go into the meeting, or have the counselor go to the IEP meeting with you.

I cannot help with the Conners scale, itself, though.

Good luck!

There is so much to know.  You need to get a child advocate to help you.  Check with Wright’s Law Yellow Pages.  You need someone to help you with a 504 plan.
