Help please. I have a meeting Thuraday at 8:00am and I want to be prepared. Are there protections for kids with disabilities under IDEA whether or not there's an IEP? I talked with the principal last night and asked if their was a relationship with Peanuts disorder and his behavior that led to discipline..Well technically without the IEP the school wont recognize his disabilities. Which I think stinks. They have had copies of their psychiatrist psychiatric evaluations and counselor reports since before school started..so frustrating.. I was told peanut did qualify for the IEP, but they are waiting for the Occupational Therapist (OT) to test him and that has been rescheduled due to his suspension. I came across info on the functional behavioral assessment and the behavior intervention plan, as they both qualify to have one I will be discussing getting one in place on Thursday at the meeting. Thanks for your help..This is so hard to sort out and make sense of the schools legalities.
