I spoke to an attorney today about my son's situation and he's going to help us out. He told me to get a copy of my difficult child's full record ASAP. Do I just send a letter to the school to get this or do I need to send a letter to someone else in the school dept.? One funny point he made- if my son is being punished because they are convinced his last incident was not a manifestation of his ed, then why on earth do they feel the need to change his Special Education placement? of course, the reality is that if he wasn't in an iep, they would send him to alternative school or expel him.
