If you sent a letter to sd director of Special Education asking for a specialist to do an fba, review previous evaluations from private psychiatrist and neuro psychiatric testing, help with iep and help educating teachers/staff about mood disorders- would you find it acceptable for case manager at school to respond by saying he'd get regular ed spec. to come in and do fba and bip? This would be the ed spec that typically does school evaluations of all sorts. I had asked for a third party specialist who can help with difficult child's specific issues. I would have posted on Special Education forum, but I'm impatient tonight- I was out of town today and need to respond to them tomorrow.
