    i have never really considered an IEP before, however difficult child 2 is failing miserably. i've done about all i can do to help him and i would like to investigate this possibility. just don't know where to start.

    You write a letter to your school requesting that he be evaluated for one based on your concerns of X, Y, Z. If you repost this over on the Special Education forum of this board, you'll get more specific replies (and may even see the answers to your questions in other threads). I would also send the letter via registered mail, possibly even certified, so that there is a record of it's delivery and receipt. Once the school gets this request, they must legally respond within a set period of time (sorry, my brain's mush tonight -- can't remember if it's 30 days or 60 days...).
