Amanda: I recently moved from NY to IL. My son is 4 and has 8 different special needs diagnosis. In NY he was receiving 4 types of services for a total of 10 service sessions a week. In IL they have reduced it to 3 types of services and 4 service sessions a week. I am having difficulty getting them to address functional goals, which NY was very good at. They are telling me that unless it is an academic goal or they are seeing a problem in the classroom they will not address that problem. He is only in a classroom setting for 2.5 hours a day and they follow a very free-play structure, and so they are not seeing the problems we see in his daycare and at home. Is there a part of the law that specifies IEPs must contain functional goals that affect life outside of school?
