adams teacher told us in iep meeting that he can rote count to 100, i cant get him past 30! i stumbled upon the director of the right to education office in tn yesterday trying to find out about the timelines on signing revised iep, after we got to talking he had me look at the draft and the revised to see if anyone else had signed yet, low and behold, not a single signature, which means, no time limit on us signing because legally, there is no iep yet since the school staff had not signed yet, i also told him about all the requests we had been denied and gave him details, he had me write down his name, number, and title and instructed me to call them and tell them that i had talked to him and he suggested that i call and let them know since no one signed we would be requesting another iep meeting to continue our discussion of adams placement, services, ect. and that if they have any questions they can call him and he would explain to them what they should be doing to accomodate adam and ensure he gets a free appropriate public education...wooo hoo! all this came from trying to find out the deadline for signing the inaccurate iep, it was a good day! having the big guy from the state "education police" on adams side feels good! my husband made a remark a few days ago "what are we going to do, call the education police on the school?" when we were not agreeing on how to handle all of this, well, i told him yes we can do that, made him mad, but when i told him that i actually did call the education police, not realizing who the man was, he sure was happy i talked to "the education police" lol! oh, and we got the eval back from vanderbilt, we now have in black and white easy to read dx of high functioning autism....let them put that in their pipe and smoke it!!!!
