Apparently my son's school decided that his placement wasn't right for him, had an IEP meeting without my presence, changed his placement to all regular ed classes and now have the nerve to be upset because he can't function or "confrom" as they put it. I told his psychiatrist about this and she said that mainstreaming should have been done gradually not all at once which I totally agree with and the guidance counselor says his psychiatrist is not educated in education and doesn't know what she's talking about!!! The guidance counselor says that I must make him "conform" regardless of his placement when I say that I would really like him back in ESE classes and would like to slowly mainstream him to reg ed classes. He must "conform" and I am setting my son up for failure if I want his placement changed back to the way it was is what she says! Is it not setting him up for failure when he is placed in a situation he is not ready for? So who really is setting him up for failure? Just a vent. I really can't believe the things these people say to parents.
