Please help. My child has Asperger’s and needs a lot of help. Teacher is making his life difficult. She does not include him or make him feel like part of the class. She ridicules him and will not follow his IEP. I emailed her asking to meet with her to go over his IEP. She replied that I was to not contact her again. Principal also emailed me saying that they would have me arrested and charged with harassment. How do I help my child.

If you have not done so, you can write the district director of special education, &/or their boss. You can also make a complaint to the state education agency. Your state parent training and information center can assist you about your options. https://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/

Schools must allow parents to communicate with the school & communicate their concerns, however, this does not guarantee communication with specific staff. You need to look to your state’s laws & regulations on this. It is not uncommon for schools to try to make “difficult parents” communicate with just one staff member.
