its getting confusing since i have 2 kids that need testing. my older difficult child has weaknesses in basic reading skills and reading fluency. also a significant difference in verbal and aural. the principle looked at his old testing and said he might have an auditory processing disorder and dyslexia. difficult child says he also mixed up his letters. in the last iep they refused to talk about his testing just made a comment that he was depressed during this testing. he has had a reading problem since 2nd grade and i have had him tutored. so do we have to have an iep to discuss tesing or can we just request it in writing. i am going to write a letter of understanding about the response about iep now or the fall for testing and they are backed up so if they agreed he would not get testing until the fall anyway. the next iep meeting we are going to hash out having them to continue paying for this placement. can we request by writing? can we request an iee and then would they have to say no or that they should have the op to test him themselves.
