    Had my meeting with the school psychologist at difficult child's school this afternoon. It went fine. We just talked about difficult child and some of his issues and his observation when he watched him in class once. He gave me a a booklet called Interim Notice of Procedural Safeguards. He also gave me a 'copy' of a letter dated 9/18/07 that was not signed and was only page 1 of 3. This letter is addressed to me & husband and states difficult child has been referred to Special Education (by my written request recv'd on 9/4/07) and explains the timelines (as I requested). He said I would be getting something in the mail and he asked me to refuse or deny (don't remember how he put it) the evaluation at this time. He wanted to have the SST meeting on 10/4 and then try some interventions first, and then if those don't work - we could continue with the referral to evaluate.

    What do you think about this?

    I think you should repost this on the special education board and get their expert opinion over there.
