what is the deal with these schools?! Why do I have to drag the information from them. No one ever seems to want to really help. I need to have an IEP, does anyone else have this issue?Answer Question

The school 'doesn't want to' because it cost them money. Plain as that. It's stupid, I know. As far as getting an IEP having a diagnosis helps. From there knowing your rights. Since they very state to state I can't help you to much there. In my state you have to go through a 3 step process before they will even do and IEP eligibility meeting. The process is called SST (student support team) It took us a full school year, with a diagnosis, to get to the official IEP meeting. Find a parent/child advocate group in your area and absorb as much information as you can. Some advocacy groups will even offer an 'IEP buddy' This website can be a good place to start.
