I requested an IEP for my son a few months ago. We are due to reconvene next month. I had a full nueropsych evaluation done this past summer with a diagnosis of Aspie. difficult child's psychiatrist and therapist both agree on the diagnosis along with ADHD as a comorbid. The school district decided the evaluation was not acceptable because difficult child was medicated only part of the time (the npsych asked to specifically do it this way) so the school is doing their own evaluation. The social worker suggested that the team may be leaning towards an ED classification, of which, I don't think would be beneficial for my son. He primarily has a difficult time transitioning, following directions, staying on track, being organized, etc. He starts middle school next year and I'm very nervous about him being thrown into a multi-classroom, multi-teacher situation without some kind of engagement from a social worker or someone at the middle school helping him get and stay on track. He's already failing almost all of his classes this year however they will not hold him back so he'll go into middle regardless in the fall. His 504 is rarely followed and sometimes completely ignored. I'm not sure what exactly to ask for assistance on if the IEP is approved. If the IEP is recommended for ED, I was told I can decline it. If the IEP is denied, I was told we can continue with the 504, however do I have any avenue of disagreeing with the denial (and possibly engaging an advocate if necessary).
