difficult child is getting an IEE and it's being done by his previous, private therapist from last year. I signed a release form so he could get difficult child's school records and stuff but clarified on it that it did NOT cover any info that came out in previous private therapy. (I didn't want things difficult child might have said in confidence to his therapist being written up in the school district report.) Today I got a message from the evaluator asking for a release form so he could talk to difficult child's current therapist in Department of Juvenile Justice. While I don't think difficult child has discussed anything with her that should be a problem for the school district to know, I'm not sure. I can tell you that I don't agree with her assessment of difficult child's or our family issues AT ALL. While the school district psychiatric went to one extreme in her original psychiatric report of difficult child (making it look like he was an antisocial sociopath), this therapist (who is not related to the school district but she does work for Department of Juvenile Justice), goes to the other extreme of minimizing it all- calling difficult child's issues "acting out" and basicly saying that it's because I've tried to control him and keep him from feeling "empowered"- and she says she sees NO antisocial tendencies at all. (Never mind that the GAL and people in the neighborhood, and others feel like the issue is that I didn't keep control of my child when I should have.) Anyway- should I sign this release form or not? I'm leaning toward "not".
