Olivia:  I was curious if the child has the legal right to know if they are mentally retarded or have a terminal illness, if they’re parents dont agree to them knowing. Do doctors legally have to provide this information for the child of age 16-17?

This doesn’t seem like a special education law question. Perhaps you could ask one of those attorneys who advertise “initial consultation free”.
