She recently started taking medication for ADD. She has failed 5th grade due to reading. Meagan needs the accommodations. I know all about it because my son has had an IEP for 9 years. Meagan is struggling and I KNOW she will benefit from it...but I dont know where to start. When Jason started, it was the school that recommended it. Not sure who and what to ask for.Answer Question
Once you have gone through the teacher and counselor, ask for a meeting with those two plus the principal and even the special ed director for your system. At this point during this meeting if they do not agree to an IEP for your child, you tell them that you want to start your "due process", these two words should get things started. Once you tell them you want due process they have a certain number of days to do what you ask or they are in violation for national and state laws. You should be able to find out the number of days for your state online or calling your states ed dept, and it is not that many days.
I hope you get the services you need. Good Luck!
