  1. I have a question concerning who can and can’t come to an IEP meeting. I saw where each parent has the right to know who is going to be there. I turned in the names of the people I am bringing. If my ex husband does not let me know who he is bringing, can I ask that these people not be allowed to attend? I’m concerned he might bring his girlfriend, who is only going to be there to insult me, and not be there to say positive things to help my son.
