A friend has a daughter who has is going into the 8th grade. She has epilepsy that is controlled by medication and has always had an IEP. Her reading and I think it's her math are testing at a 4th grade level. Her mom doesn't know if she has been tested for any Learning Disability (LD)'s, but said there had been no testing since the IEP was implemented (which was either in K or grade 1). Am I correct that she can request (via certified mail) to have her daughter reevaluated? Should she state in the letter the reasons why, i.e., her math and reading levels? And if the school district refuses they have to give a reason, correct? Next question is, if the school district cannot on their own help this child through pull-out classes (which is what is currently being done - for years - for at least reading and I think math, too) what are the responsibilities of the school district to get this child up to grade level? Do they have such a responsibility? Would paying for one-on-one tutoring be one of those responsibilities? Basically, what can be done via the IEP to get this child the services she needs? I'm just not cognitively up to doing all the research. I apologize. So, I'm asking that you let me use your brain and all of your wonderful knowledge? by the way, this is the same school district that I had such a hard time getting an IEP in for my own daughter. They keep passing the kids along and then they reach high school and they fail.
