OK- I read difficult child's latest IEP from the meeting earlier this week. Everything seems ok except this one lingering doubt- they have him listed as going for an advanced diploma and wanting to go to college. They have listed accommodations that are reasonable now and that should help him develope more in ways that would help him on post-graduate years. What I'm having doubts about is where they list actions the sd will take to "link" difficult child to transitional services for post-graduate goals. They have listed a link to vocational/technical training, our dept for the unemployed, and doctors ( which I think is dept. for rehabilitative services). That all might be good if they believe difficult child is not college bound, but they have him listed as being college bound and wanting it and they included things that makes it look like they are in support of it. So what do I do? I want to ask them to include a link for a transition that really reflects college bound but I'm not sure what specifical;ly to ask for. If it really is impossible, I want them to stop patroning us, if that's what they are doing. And is it typical and appropriate for the transitional plan to be written as a "transitional iep" and is this just as legal with the same backing as a typical IEP?
