has anyone else had their difficult child's psychiatrist attend meetings? How well was this received? difficult child is not doing well this year and 2 of his 3 teachers have admitted to not really reading his IEP. School is really not going well for him this year, he's teetering on the brink of suspension and technically already should have been suspended, if not expelled. I'm meeting with an education advocate this afternoon to review his IEP, find out what we can change and what we need to **** up and then we're going to write a letter requesting this meeting. I spoke with difficult child's psychiatrist yesterday and told her all about the school problems as the principal had asked me directly to speak with the psychiatrist and ask about a medication increase. I did NOT ask for a medication increase but said conversationally that the school administration has implied that he isn't medicated enough. At that point psychiatrist asked to be included on the next IEP meeting. Does anyone know if having the psychiatrist attend common? If so is it generally well received? My husband & I are so frustrated at this point right now we're (well, I with his knowledge and approval) actively researching home-schooling.
