I had an email from the Specail Education Diagnostician, so I called her. She has the meeting set for December 6th. At noon. Ex said he might not be able to attend. Figures. She told me he DOES qualify for an IEP. She told me he was very smart--she did the IQ testing on him and the Achievement testing. I told her I was worried because *I* had no idea what to even ask for. I told her I knew he was smart but that I just had no idea why he can't/won't finish work. She told me to not worry, they had TONS of things to ask for for him. That having those ideas was their job. She also told me that the Psycologist had plenty of things to tell me that might explain things better. I can hardly wait to see what the evaluations show--and what the Psycologist has discovered. And what they recommend. Even know I KNEW he needed an IEP (they like to call it an ARD meeting here) I am just... flaberggasted that it has come to be. I'm in shock (?). I wish I knew something more before I went into the meeting. I hate to be...surprised. I feel like I'm being called to the Principal and I don't know WHY.
