Zoe: My 3-year-old son was just placed in a special ed school without my consent. He has an IEP for speech, and a few weeks ago, the team met for the first time. We decided to put him in the AM/PM program, which is a half-day program in a special ed school. After that he would go back to his regular daycare / preschool for the rest of the day. The only problem was transportation from the one program to the other. It says on his IEP that he was to be in a regular classroom 40% of the time.
The day after the IEP, the speech pathologist and my ex’s mother (my son’s grandmother – also principal of this special ed school) decided to enroll him in a special ed school for the entire day.
What I am mad about is that they made this decision without me. Can they even do that? Change his placement the day after the first IEP meeting, without consulting me?
