Can a child have an IEP without getting "serviced" by the school? Meaning does the child have to receive some sort of service eg: resource class, Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) help in order to have an IEP? I have been told they have to receive a service to have an IEP. Can a child have an IEP without getting serviced? I want my son to get accommodations and extra help, but not to be placed in resource or get taken out of class to go see a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP). We are having his IEP meeting tomorrow and I want to be armed with info. Whenever my kids IEP meetings come around they make sure a representative from the district is there coz no-one in the school seems to know the law.
