I am sooooooooooooooooo tired of the stall tactics, intimidation and criminal nature of The State of Texas not willing to monitor the school districts of this state in regards to our children getting their FAPE! It is October 16, 2008, my adult son, whom I have authorization and power of attorney over to advocate for him, and I have been trying since 8/28/08 to get his IEP corrected from all of the errors for the ARD from before the Friday before school stated, that I am worn out! http://www.aboutworkingmemory.com/ http://www.cogmed.com/cogmed/ I also work with 16 families to parent teach them how to have a family voice and choice in their children mental health, and yet 90% are in crisis due to the lack of support they receive from the SD they go to which aggrevates their mental illness. I am so exhausted from the stress and then to see my son who has made a 360 degree turn around in a year in behavior and attitude be discoraged because he is 18, and they would just prefer him to quit! I need an attorney I am tired of nitpicking thru IEP paperwork of errors and it taking two weeks to get a reconvened ARD when they closed it out when it wasn't finished. Below is an example of the last ARD which lasted 3.5 hours and now this draft is incorrect! In the mean time he is getting tired of waiting. (it didn't show up right, so I deleted) I am worn out from monitoring them and then they still mess it up! My son is being patient but they told him yesterday he can have a tape recorder but teacher turns it on he cant touch and then if he buys his own he cant use do to confidentialty reasons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need and attorney, cant afford one, need this resolved they have two years to get him caught up 6 yrs in math and Language Arts and they WILL not say he is Learning Disability (LD) it is his ED which impedes his progress! OMG - and now!!!! they will not even mention his academic level on the IEP, filed four TEA complaints not one incestigate they mislead responses and I dont have time to get the letter to the OSEP and OCR because of my work caseload of 6-16 yrs with SED's!!!! Someone please they are giving me so many administrative roadblocks I feel like I am in TDC with-o hope of parole!!!!!!!!
