Andy: Does the parent’s right to give partial consent to their child’s IEP only apply to initial evaluation? Our child is currently on an IEP and we recently had an IEP meeting. We consented to all proposed goals and services, EXCEPT the team’s proposal to remove all of the (current) push-in service minutes. Our team is saying they will not give full consent to implement new goals until we agree on removing/reducing service minutes in unrelated area. Do parents have a right to give partial consent to IEP so new essential services can begin, while areas of dispute get worked out?
