(WILX) - A parent frustrated with the way virtual special education has gone in his child’s school is now taking matters into his own hands. The basics past few months haven’t been easy for Darren Warner and his son Noah who has autism. 14-year-old Noah is a student in the Grand Ledge Public School System. His learning is based on an individualized education plan (IEP) catered to his specific needs. Warner says virtual learning is failing to meet those needs. “Unfortunately, what has happened is that we have an environment where remote learning has allowed the district to drop the ball on many of their duties for students with IEPs,” said Warner. Noah no longer has the teaching assistant he’s used to having by his side; ensuring he stays on task. His dad has now stepped into that role and has left his job to do so.
