I have a perfect person who knows difficult child (counselor at elementarty school) Is difficult child's best friend. She is the only person I know who can really get through to him. She has been a counselor for many many years, before easy child was there. She teaches parenting classes, she has helped me through some very difficult times. She said she would go with me, but it would have to be after 3pm when her school gets out. Middle school gets out at 3:40. I know she will do what is best for difficult child. She will know what to say and even though she works for school district, She will be honest and fair. IEP is set for 2:15pm next week. Can I request a reschedule at a later time? Then I won't have to be alone. What if they tell me they cannot make a later time? Then what do I do?
