Okay my daughter was recently diagnoised with PPD/High Functioning Austism. As soon as we found out we called the school and schedule an evaluation to get her started in their Autism Program as soon as possible. After evaluating her for about 40 mins. They informed me that my daughter does not have Autism. In one way I was like GREAT but I was also confused why our had a doctor with 25 years experience tell me one thing and here the school was saying he was wrong. As you know you have to go to a meeting to go over the evals. Well while we were there they gave me the result of the tests that they had me fill out and all suggest my daughter was had mild Autism. But the one eval. they did said she was not! So they put her in a special ed class working on just her lanuage because they said she just has a lanuage delay. She has been in Spec Ed for about two weeks now and I just couldn't take it anymore and I talk to the teacher about the whole thing. She said she saw alot of chareristic of Autism. So the next day I talked to the assistant principal and once again voiced my concerns. I also told her that we are going next week to a neurogolist and if he came to the same conclusion of her having Autism I wanted her put into Autism Program. She told me that the desion the Autism team is finally and they could do nothing and she would have to get lanuage therapy. Is this legal. I have also talk to 3 other parents dealing with the same if not worse thing at the exact same school district. Does anyone out know how we can get our children the treatment they need and more importantly they deserve. Sorry so Long. But thanks for listening!!!

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things.
