If You Have One Then One Child What Do You Send Them All To Public, Regardless Of Services? Send Some To Private And Some To Public?

Have three children on spectrum, but one that is in danger of losing her IEP. What should I do? Continue to send her to public regardless of services? Pay for private and hope she doesn't get kicked out? Hire a lawyer? Keep in mind money is tight. Any advice appreciated.

The iep is there for a reason. Your child deserves an education that the other kids are receiving. By law they must follow your child's iep. Why is she in danger of losing her iep? You have a right to call an emergency iep meeting any time. I would contact a local advocate to have them sit in on an iep meeting. They would know the disability law in much more detail and be able to protect you and your daughter's rights. Here is the disability rights website for your protection. Keep fighting for your legal rights momma! http://www.ada.gov/cguide.htm#anchor62335

FAPE has your child covered. Get a local advocate, usually free. If the school unable to educate your child, then it is their responsibility to pay for her tuition and transportation to a private placement.

How is she doing in school? My daughter does not currently have an IEP, we just have a support team in place because she is doing so well. I've gone back and forth and whether to pursue getting an advocate and pushing for an IEP. I've decided to hold off because she is doing well with no accommodations and we take her to private therapies outside of school which is expensive but cheaper than a private school. Also, private schools are not always accomadating to a child who might need a little extra help

I live in Texas so not sure how it works in your state. When my son was younger his younger sister and him started at the same public school that was in our neighborhood. He ended up getting transferred to another public school that the teacher was real familiar with autism. When he was in our neighborhood school they were always suspending him they could not handle his behaviors. When he went to the other public school I was never called to pick him up for behaviors. This was like 25 years ago and a lot was not known about Autism. So that teacher was familiar. Ran with her kids every morning. made sure my son was inclusion for reading because he could read and spell almost anything. it was hard going to meetings like PTA and back to school night. Sometimes they were the same night. I had to give him what he needed and let her go to school with her friends in the neighborhood
