I am scheduled to have an IEP meeting for my difficult child. I also have a job interview around the same time (Yes, I inadvertantly over scheduled). My son's school does not postpone or reschedule. They normally proceed without the parent? Do the school have an obligatin to reschedule if I am unable to attend for legitimate reasons?
Also, are there assessments that I can refuse, but still have my son qualify for an IEP? I've also provided the school with a psychiatric-ed and audiology report (hense the need for the IEP), plus documentation from my son's psychiatrist. Do they need to conduct yet another assessment?
Any advice given today is great as I have to contact the school about the postponement today.
