Thank you everyone for the warm welcome and the hugs. Boy do I need them. My wife met with school psychologist and they want to start the evaluation right away. She said something interesting: "we need to move on this asap, this place is not good for him. We should find him a better situation within 4 weeks". We are to give her the IEP request and she is the one that does the evaluation. Why does that not sit right with me. Now I'm getting paranoid; are the psychiatric and principal colluding to get him out... ugh. The school principal shared this link with us: The Lang School It's a school in NYC that caters to 2e kids. It costs $50K per year. She doesn't know if the DOE would pay for that. Why even show it to us? I found a website for educational advocates yesterday. A lot of lawyers listed... do we need one? There was one listing that is not a lawyer but a passionate advocate. DS was having a good day today until he got to art class. He opened his marker and accidentally hit another kid. The kid hit DS back and a fight started. Now DS is suspended.
