Penny: Can a private school for kids with Autism refuse to allow a service dog? Not a religious school and open to the public. It is documented on our IEP that they will not allow it.

“Documented on your IEP”?! It sounds like it might be time to request a meeting to modify the IEP. The IEP isn’t supposed to be a place where the school lists things they’re not going to do!

This would be covered by the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). I googled allowing service dogs in private schools & found a # of articles.
