  • The school psychologist is supposed to do this, are they not doing their job?

  • I would get those therapists to explain things better. schedule a meeting with them, thats part of their job.

  • You should just outline things step by step. It does not have to be worded "professionally". Just make a very specific list of the things he needs to work on and request they be added immediately to his IEP. Good luck.

  • WATCH THIS..... THIS IS THE SECOND PART... I hope that this helps! My son is 8 and Im homeschooling with the intention of seeking reimbursement from the district. It is a long and hard road to get to the point that I'm at , BUT, the best thing that Ive ever done for my son, (besides loving him) is getting him a BCBA. That's a Board certified behavior analyst. They are expensive but the best thing for these kids. If the link doesn't work, go to you tube and watch DEVELOPING A GREAT IEP WITH GARY MAYERSON. There are 2 parts to the video. Also if there is a POAC group in you area then they are very helpful with helping you with your rights.
