We will be engaging in battle with our school system here very soon. They don’t consider Emmett to be Autistic by their standards. They also don’t think that a child with Autism spectrum disorder/pdd-nos is Autistic. So in light of this, Emmett will be getting short changed in the services department. They are ONLY willing to provide him with speech and language. Yeah…..not gonna happen.
We have a child advocate already lined up and waiting for the paperwork. While I was hoping to do this without a battle, clearly that won’t be possible.
I was thinking, maybe it would benefit everyone if we pooled our collective knowledge and experience in the IEP/ERT department. What kind of battles have you had to fight for your child’s education? Do you have any advice for new parents preparing for this same battle? Maybe some tips or tricks?
PLEASE post a comment and let’s get this conversation started.
