Daniel: My child is 5 and has Down syndrome. We are in CA. He is currently in a blended preschool class and is thriving. We intend for him to be fully integrated next year in kindergarten with supports.
At his first IEP, 2-2014, we refused the school’s request for a psychological assessment. His disability code was recorded as EMD- Established Medical Disability. Now that he will be transitioning from preschool to kindergarten the school is again requesting psych assessments. They state that the EMD code cannot be used on his IEP going forward. Is this correct?
They are also requesting that his triennial IEP be done along with his annual. To my knowledge, his tri would be due one year from now. At this point we have agreed to the annual IEP with no psych assessment. Please advise us on how to proceed.
