I took this sample letter from our state's doe website and listed my own reasons. Do you ladies think this is ok? Can you recommend another way to word the reasons listed that doesn't sound so accusatory against the ppsych who did the report? Truthfully, I think the report was very biased because difficult child was presenting very cocky to her and she decided he was a brat, then picked and chose facts that supported her theory. In fairness, difficult child had only been there about 1 mo and no one knew him. Now the sd staff does (except the psychiatric isn't there so she still doesn't) and the staff is saying the opossite about him. I can't really bring that up though because she could only evaluation on the info she had. That isn't what bothers me- what bothers me is the way she only put facts in that supported one opinion, even when there are contradictory facts (background facts) and reports from others stating the opposite. Furthermore, difficult child will be going to a new school next year and I don't want this inaccurate picture of him being the first impression those personnel get.
