    The district will do everything they can to deny services.
    I'm on Long Island, where schools are run like businesses.
    If I knew then what I know now, I would have hired a lawyer five years ago. That's the only language these bastards understand.

      The Long Island Advocacy Center

      From their site:

      Direct Individualized Services
      Through mediations, negotiations and representation, specially trained attorneys and paraprofessionals ensure that individuals receive the maximum service to which they are entitled under the law.

      Special Education Support
      Information, referral, technical and individual support services empowering families that are  struggling with the special education process

      LIAC also provides trainings in relevant laws, regulations and advocacy skills to family members, students, educators, probation officers and other professionals.

      They may be able to help you--could be worth checking out.

      •  So far, it's been a very good school year. (5+ / 0-)

        My daughter is attending a Montessori class every Saturday, which so far seems to be incredible.
        She's met a lot of other people her age who also have Aspergers, and she's made some friends, which is a very new experience for all of us.
        She now wants to be a psychologist when she grows up, so that she can help children with Aspergers.
