  •  Yes! A witness is crucial (5+ / 0-)

    Preferably an "expert."My sons are 33 and 30 now, but I still have nightmares occasionally.  Individual education plans are expensive to implement, so they try to wiggle out of them whenever possible, especially for kids that look like they might be able to be swept along for a few years before the deficits are too noticeable.  They usually shape right up when confronted by someone they see as an authority, or even just a neutral witness.  

    I also agree that private testing can be worthwhile if you can afford it.  

    The past 50 years we: -Ended Jim Crow. -Enacted the Voting Rights Act. -Attained reproductive rights (contraceptive & abortion). -Moved toward pay equity. Republicans want to take our country back. I WON'T GO BACK!

      I'd show up for one of them. I'm not an expert but there are several school districts in Florida that were quickly fearing me LOL. I helped a few people locally with similar issues over the years. Plus I'm an OTA which may give me some umph.

      But I agree, she needs a witness, someone with a relevant professional field if possible. If not maybe another parent who's been there (and if the school district knows them all the better).
