My son Nicholas is a second grade student. He was diagnosed with Asperger's in 2005. The school hasn't cooperated at all with this. They tested him and placed him in special ed forwriting but he recieved no other services through the school. The past two years I have had to take him to OT and PT. His therapist were surprised that the school wasn't working with him. I just found out in the past few weeks that he now needs speech therapy. When I approached Nick's school with this there comment on it was that he doesn't need it and the therapist just wants the money. I have been unhappy with the school for years and I asked them to retest him to see is he could qualify for any of the above services. They told me that Nick doesn'thave Asperger's (even though his neurologist sent them a letter). They stand by there testing and will not retest him. I have taken Nick out of school for this semester due to casting and leg braces that are going to be done. I am just really frusterated because I feel lost. I want what is best for Nick. Getting him retested will involve suing the school. Any Advice?

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. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
