Lisa: Confused – My 10 yr old son was diagnosed w/autism Apr 2014. The school (in VA) has ONLY provided a 504 so far. I pushed this yr & they are testing him more to see if he is eligible for an IEP. The district psychologist has said just because he has a medical diagnosis of autism does not mean he will qualify for an educational diagnosis of autism. I told her that was B.S. How can this insanity be??? We meet Dec 9th to go over the results of all the testing. Can someone PLEASE clarify this for me or point me to law or guidelines for Virginia?
