so hubby has a sister that is a special ed teacher for metro schools in nashville, this is a good thing. he called her today and they decided she would come and evaluate adam, now dont get me wrong, i respect her opinion and i do think it will carry weight since she is a special ed teacher that works in the state of tn. heres the problem, there will be a cookout which will include his bother and sil and nanny along with his sister, there is no way in hell adam is going to let her eval him like the others have with all the people in his life here cause these are the people that baby him so much. when i had ot and sp come to the house it was just me, adam, and the evaluator, no distractions and he did great. it does kind of bother me that dad thinks that her opinion is going to be better then theirs, she is not qualified to eval sp or ot, she does have the quailifications to see where adam is academically, which we do need that for sure, because i have found major decrepencies in what the school said he could do during the iep meeting and what he actually can to. they said he can rote count to 100, thats not true, getting to 25 is a struggle, can we say iep violation? they already had his placement on iep at the meeting, once again, can we say violation? he is talking about a lawyer and i cant get it through his head there is a protocal, iep meeting (documented, recorded) something he would not let me do, they did, and it says we agreed to lifeskills, we have nothing to prove we didnt. anyways, he wants to go to due process, cant make him understand first its medication then due process, and without proper documentation then there is no need to go that far, any advocate will tell him that and so will a lawyer. i begged him to start this process back in january cause we knew it was going to come to this, school lets out may 24, 4 week, due to him putting everything off as long as he could and not informing himself of the timelines adam will go to life skills next yr until this gets worked out. i have ot eval, sp eval, and vanderbilt eval, how many more evals is dad going to need? to be honest, i know having his siter helping out is a great idea, but it offends me that he things the evals i arranged and the things i have told him needs to be approved by her, i like her well enough, its just that i dont how to explain it, seems like unless someone else tells him the answer to his question, the answer i give him can not possibly be true unless he can find someone else to confirm it.
