I have found that letters from professionals on their letterhead goes far with requests from the school for services or mainstreaming, etc. You may need to pay the professionals but it is worth it. Also it is allowable for professionals to be on the phone via a conference line to attend and IEP meeting. YOu can request this. You can also record the meetings as long as you let the rest of the group know. Anytime a school says “No” to any reasonable request they must put this in writing on a Prior Written Notice. This way you have something in writing if you need to pursue legal action.

They are to give him the amount that he “needs” & can handle. Your state parent training & information center can inform you of the concept of inclusion & your state rules on this. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center
