ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh sorry had to get that out! Went for IEP re-evaluation 2day with my inhome therapist and my CMO case worker. The head of the Special Education department was there, the man is an arrogant, condecending $%#$^#$. I have three letters from 3 different Psychiatrists that state difficult child II needs to be in a theraputic school with medication management. He is still in the IOP program at partial (1/2 day school - 1/2 day partial). Basically the *%#$^#$ said that becasue difficult child II was fine in the class that they have, which meets all state educational requirements (a self contained BD class with zero curriculm and zero theraputic enrichment and a teacher thats a froot loop) that the letters meant nothing. The fact that difficult child II was hospitalized for homicidal threats and acts, don't matter either, becasue he's fine when he's with them. Which is why when he was self mutilating himself, they felt no need to call me! The $#%#^% was rude to my CMO worker and point blank said, "if the dr.'s feel he needs medication management then CMO should pay and have him placed residentially!" One minute the guy says my son is fine with them and deserves and education in the least restrictive enviroment, and then he suggests my kid be locked away in a residential program! I am truly enraged and frustrated! I need to fester b4 taking any further action, but a mediation is coming at some point. Because I nailed this man between the eyes and said "when something bad happens while he's in school, you're accepting full liability and responsibility?" his response "of course"
