When I think about writing a short fiction story, I first decide what the story will be about. I also plan where it will take place. What will happen. And most importantly, who it will happen too. It can be hard to find the right character or situation. Here are some tips to help you get started.

1. Write about your knowledge.

This is a well-known saying that is important for all writers, but it is even more relevant when it comes characters. If you don’t have a relationship with your character, it can be difficult to see how they will react to certain situations. It is one of my favourite things to do. Although it may sound a bit stalker-like, it’s actually just for research purposes and I don’t follow people home. I observe people in different situations, whether they are at restaurants, shopping malls, or driving down the highway. How can they avoid conflict? How can they get along with others? Do they seem shy? Outgoing? What would they do if the following happened?

This information will help you create a new character in your story. This will help you to write about a shy person when you’re writing about them in a particular situation. You just need to get into the habit to notice people in all situations, from the most mundane to the most stressful.

2. To write it, you must see it.

How do you describe your character in a story? So that I can refer to it when I describe a character’s attributes to my readers, I keep a photo from a magazine or on the internet handy. How long is their hair? Do their hairs cover their eyes? What happens when they smile Is their facial expression affected by different situations? What is the effect of different situations? These are crucial questions to answer. It can be useful to draw your character from someone you know, or someone you see often, in order to pinpoint these traits.

3. Define your character.

Which type of person are you? What are their deepest desires? What are their dreams about at night? What type of people are they drawn to? Your story will be shaped by how you define your character. Even the simplest of mannerisms can make a difference in the eyes of your reader. It can be hard to tell the reader if your character is a good person or not if you don’t understand their inner workings. Because you will be writing about your characters, you need to know all you can about them. It is essential that you live out their lives on your computer screen.

It is essential to learn everything you can about your characters before you start looking for them in your fiction. Even small characters need to be understood. What would their reactions be to a particular situation? Are they able to react appropriately to the situation? What are their morals and values? These steps will help you get started in creating your characters. You can learn a lot from watching other people go about their day and get a better understanding of your character. You can model your characters after people you have met and get to know their behavior patterns and mannerisms. Keep in mind that not all people are good or evil in real life so you should reflect this in your character. You can give them a side that is nice or hurtful, if they are an evil villain. This will help you to develop inner conflict with them and allow your story the chance to grow.

Are you a parent of an autistic child, learning disabled, or someone with a physical disability who has struggled to get their child the appropriate special education? Is it possible that special education staff come to Individual Educational Plan meetings with a predetermined decision about your child’s placement or needs? This article will address predetermination, special educational, and solutions.

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, (IDEA), states that children have the right to free and appropriate public education (FAPE). Parents are entitled to participate in any decisions that affect their child’s education. The meeting may allow special education personnel to bring a draft IEP, but only if they are open to changing the IEP to include parental input.

Predetermination can be defined as school personnel making unilateral decisions concerning a child before an IEP meeting. This is done without parental input. Or school district staff presenting an “take it or leave it” IEP. School district personnel will consider the input of parents who bring information about their child’s special needs and provide evidence to support it. Many special education personnel are already pre-determined or determined what services or placements will be offered.

In a well-known case of predetermination, the court determined that a school district had an inexplicable policy of denying any request for Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). This was despite evidence that a child requested it. In this case, the parents paid for a private ABA class that made the child’s progress remarkable. The progress of the child was exciting to the school district until the parents demanded reimbursement. They refused. The court found that the school district refused to listen to parents or their experts about the child’s needs for ABA. This was predetermination. The courts ruled that parents were entitled to reimbursement for private ABA.

Another case involving predetermination found that even though evidence showed that a child was making good progress at a school private, and that the child still required the services of the private school, the district had only placed him in the private school while they worked on a plan for transitioning him to a school district-based placement. They refused to hear the parents or their experts and said that the child should continue attending the private school to receive FAPE. The court ruled in favor of the child and allowed him to continue at the private school at his own expense.

My opinion is that predetermination occurs when a school makes unilateral decisions regarding a child’s education, despite the evidence, and refuses to listen to parents. When parents are presented with a “take it or leave it” IEP.

How to overcome predetermination

1. Bring documentation of your child’s educational needs to the IEP Meeting and share it with special education personnel. Schools will consider all information provided by parents.

2. Parents must participate in the IEP development process. You should relay the court rulings to special educators. If a parent is not allowed to participate in the development and implementation of their child’s IEP then predetermination or denial of FAPE could be made.

3. If you are still not allowed to speak up or if the special education staff refuses to provide an option for placement or services, then consider filing a complaint against the state for violating IDEA.

4. An Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE), is performed on your child in order to determine which special education services and related programs your child requires. It is important that the evaluator who you select is available to perform a thorough and concise evaluation of your child. This report should include recommendations for related special education services.

Predetermination is bad for children with disabilities. This is because it prevents children from receiving the services they require. It is worth advocating for your child!
