i have been reading up on things but with-so much info i want to make sure i am understanding things. difficult child is currently being evaluated at our(parents)initiative through private means. do you also suggest that i send a cert letter requesting the school do their own mde also? i want an additional iep in place for him to address his behaviour problems(has iep for speech in place already). things are escalating with-him and i can see his lack of interest in practicing reading and such at home. i know this will eventually hurt him academically. so i beg your patience as i try to sort out all the great info this site has to offer.
