I am suppose to go to my dd's school & renew her IEP...

It has to be reviewed annually. But I am still not even sure what disability she has. I asked and they told me that she doesn't have one, but she has behavioral issues.
Is that considered a disability?
Can I just "not" agree to put her in a special ed class like they have her in now?
Would I need an attorney?

  • OH YES MAAM you can say you dont want an IEP....and I would have them tell me exactly what the heck she has one for as well!

    I am a teacher and a parent of a dd with aspergers. Who has an IEP. They are reqired to listen to you and include you in the process. DO NOT feel bad for making them explain it to you, and also do not feel bad if you feel she no longer needs one...YOU YOU YOU are in control of this process...even if they dont want you to know that you are :)

  • IEP aren't just for "disabled' kids,they're for when the child needs extra help for whatever reason
