MM: Looking for either clarification or guidance to areas of the law(s) governing the child study team (likely IEP) meeting following an IEE. In particular, can the team meet without the neuropsychologist who did the IEE (or without the parent for that matter) IF the parent DOES NOT APPROVE of it?
My child’s school is saying we cannot accommodate the neuropsychologist’s schedule “due to time constraints” and is insisting on meriting without her being present. Obviously, given her knowledge of my child’s areas of strength and need for accommodations, I believe she’s an essential part of the meeting and am not ok moving forward without her attending (within a reasonable timeframe, of course!)
What, if any, legal voice in this situation? Any guidance – especially “magic words” to use when responding – is truly appreciated!
