What happens if the parent doesn't agree with the other members of the iep team (who will all be members of school district)? According to PEATC, there are no advocates in my area who are familiar with IEP's for kids with bipolar. I can't afford to take difficult child's therapist with me. I am verbally relaying his concerns tomorrow at the meeting. I see this being part of the conversation : Me: difficult child has difficulty with ABC Them: Oh- No- we don't see that here at all. Me: Well based on what I see and his therapist or psychiatrist see and his grades and what difficult child tells me, I think we need to address this in the IEP Them: We think he can do those things just fine when he wants to- see how well he did 3 months ago... So, then what do you do?
