Now they want to meet to discuss and go over paperwork regarding change to educable mentally handicapped. which they put on that her daddy signed because they told him this would benefit her. So far I have not seen much benefit from this.
we are losing are home now , and we have been denied help for her due to are income, nowI have no one to watch her at 14 so I had to leave my job. I am sick of all this continued schools bologni (oops did I spell that right) Any advice?
I assume the school changed her diagnosis because when they reevaluated her the testing showed a shift between her IQ and ability. The school doesn't just decide to change the disability. A psychologist tests her one on one for several hours and examines the results to determine the most accurate placement.
Kids aren't placed in programs based on what's best for the parents. It's done based on what's most accurate.
I dont' quite understand what the school changing her IEP has to do with you getting someone to watch her?

The school psychologist is a professional.

The school does make the determination of what ESE label to put on the IEP. The school psychologist does the evaluation and makes the determinationas to what disability the child will have on his or her IEP. The school psychologist is a doctor (phd not md) and a qualified professional.
As a parent you do have a right to attend the IEP meeting and give input as to what services you think will meet her needs. The label has nothing to do with the services (at least where I teach). The IEP is individualized to meet her needs, not generalized based on the disability.

The school couldn't have made changes to the IEP without getting permission from the parent. She said her husband signed off on it.
