Here is the e-mail Mrs. -----, Thanks for taking the time this morning to have a phone conversation with me about V's difficulties, assessments and implications on his education. I completely understand that the School District cannot provide services to individuals unless their education is negatively and significantly impacted by their disability. Like we talked about, I have attached a copy of V's complete private psycho-educational evaluation report done by Dr. -------. I believe it to be a quite accurate picture of V's current strengths and weaknesses. As you will see, V's main issues are visual-spatial skills, communication (being at a "borderline level"), academic achievement, socialization, activities of daily living, withdrawal and anxiety. Giving his significant delay in social communication (despite good verbal skills), I really appreciate your scheduling a language screening by the school Speech Language Pathologist (SLP). I will also work on getting a private speech and language evaluation. I also look forward to your answer regarding the "15 point discrepancy" law being an automatic IEP or not. Should you have any questions regarding the report or any other matter, feel free to contact me. If we keep working as a team and keep having an open communication, I feel confident that V will have the help he deserves for a successful school experience. Sincerely, What do you think? As you would have guessed she gave me a bunch of BS saying that his education would have to be affected and that is not the school district conclusion on THEIR assessment. She implied that they don't have to take that new report into account but still wanted a copy. I nicely exlained that I wanted to work as a team but still mentioned that 15 point discrepancy law (advocate told me about it and assured me it was a garanteed IEP). She first avoided to answer and when I asked her again she said she would have to look into it. I am good at "playing dumb" and I don't think she suspects my attentions: WAR if V does not get what he needs. I am planting seeds and living a paper trail. Anything else I should be doing? by the way, she went from from "we can't do anything" to "let's do a speech screening" scheduled Feb. 26th. I asked about a cmplete evaluation but she claims they have to do screening first. Is that right? Input welcome!
