She attends Santa Fe Elementary School where she also went to kindergarten. Miriam was referred to the IEP team because she is having difficulty in reading. Miriam is being evaluated for an IEP in the area of specific learning disability (SLD). In kindergarten, Miriam did not meet grade level benchmarks in reading and math; however, her teacher reported that she has excellent social skills. Miriam was eager to participate, made friends easily, and was thoughtful. Miriam’s parents say that she loves attending school and although her language was slightly delayed, they thought it might be due to the fact that she is the baby of the family. Miriam’s parents speak Arabic and English at home. All the family members indulge her. She also has a history of ear infections; as indicated in the Health report prepared for the IEP meeting.Miriam’s teacher, Ms. Robinson, is worried about Miriam’s progress in language arts. She administered a universal screener at the beginning of the year, a phonemic awareness task, and Miriam scored at the below basic level.
