I have an IEP for difficult child II next month (they stretched it well past the mandatory 30 days). I spoke at length with the head of the Special Education department here in town (Mr. Harvey) about difficult child II and the upcoming meeting. he advised me against bringing difficult child II's in home therapist, crisis management SW, or FSO advocate. Stating that none of them are qualified to be giving their opinions on difficult child II's educational enviroment. Well I am bringing all of them anyways, they were less then flattered when i shared his opinion with them. LOL Sigh....of course when I RSVP'd for me and 3 guests the School's SW called me to ask if I was bringing an attorney. I should have said "good idea" but I told her "no, not yet"
