provide/pay for and allow an IEE if a parent requests it due to inaccurate information given in the sd's psychoeducational report and due to that report completely focusing on diagnosis's that have never been given by any other professional? And these aren't diagnosis's pertaining to Learning Disability (LD)'s. Or does the parent even need to justify that request? Can I ask (and get) the IEE from a licensed "clinical psychologist"? She has a PhD in psychiatric (the lady who did this sd evaluation) but is licensed as a "school psychiatric". I checked our state regs and found that clinical psychs are licensed to include "Diagnosis and treatment of mental and emotional disorders" but this is not listed under the practice of a licensed school psychiatric. My son has had diagnosis's as follows: Depression and Disruptive Behavior, Bipolar 1, Adjustment Disorder with depression and disturbance of conduct, Mood Disorder, not otherwise specified. He has had rule-outs of ODD and 3 years ago had a rule-out of CD. These diagnosis's came from 3 child/adolescent psychiatrists and 1 neuropsychological report. I don't think they are out of whack wwith my son's history or the family history or even with each other. This person, who is a educational psychologist for the sd, decided that my son shows signs of depression sometimes "based on previous reports" but she focuses on CD as a primary concern and says he is Social Maladaptive (is that even a diagnosis?) and has anti-social tendencies because he will "do anti-social things if he thinks it will impress peers". Basicly, she's saying he has an Axis II diagnosis and gives no weight to an Axis I diagnosis. She mentions that the one psychiatrist ruled-out BiPolar (BP), but didn't mention that the same psychiatrist also ruled out CD in the same report and said that she thought it was Adjustment Disorder with secondary acting out due to stressors. She said difficult child had "many evaluations in the past with differing diagnosis's", however, I view those diagnosis's along the same lines and find it hard to believe that they (we) are that off-base and the problem all along has just been that difficult child was a bad kid and I'm in denial about it. Then she's recommending what therapy difficult child and I should have outside of school and what "community supports" and monitoring he should get at home and in the community for his CD. She is an educational psychiatric- if there are more quallified people involved, should she be doing this? She also "found" that he scores average in everything except he had very low scores in visual and verbal/audio memory but even though those were low on his tests in 2006 and they have gone down since, she attributes it to some outside noise going on during the testing. Can I get an IEE because of this? If you get an IEE does it have to be with another psychoeducational person who does nothing but want to report "bad behavior" to a school? This is a real issue here since the Cho incident.
