Are you the parent of a child with autism, learning disability or physical disability who has struggled to provide your child with the right special education? Do you think special education staff meet with the Individual Education Plan (IEP) that has already decided on your child's placement or the necessary services? This article discusses predetermined, specific education and how to combat it.
According to the IDEA, the child has the right to free appropriate public education (FAPE). Parents have the right to take part in any decision regarding their children's education. Special education staff may bring draft IEP at the meeting, but only if they are willing to change the IEP to allow parents to enter.
The predetermined definition is school staff who make unilateral decisions about the child before the IEP meeting and refuse to listen to parental input during the session. Or school district staff who show you accept or leave the IEP. If the parent disclose information that the child needs a specific or specific educational service and evidence that the child needs it, the district district staff must at least "consider" the income. The problem is that a lot of special education staff have already decided or predicted what placement or services they offer.
In the well-known preliminary ruling case, the court found that the school sickness was an informal policy for the ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) programs; even though the child has proven this. In this case, the parents paid a private AAB program in which the child made enormous progress. The school district excited the child's development until parents asked for a refund; he was not willing to pay. The court found that the school did not listen to the parents or their experts about the child's need for the AIF. This was predominantly decisive and the courts decided that the parents were entitled to reimbursement of the private AAB.
In another predictable case, the court found that despite the evidence that a child had made great progress in a private school, the services provided by a private school, the school district only placed the child in a private school because they worked on a plan to to move to a district placement. She refuses to listen to the parent or parent's experts that the child should have continued the private school to receive the FAPE. The court found that it was predetermined; and he could continue public spending at the private college.
In my view, it was predetermined when the school district unilaterally makes choices about child education, despite the foregoing evidence, and refuses meaningful parental contributions. Also, when AEP takes or leaves the IEP, it is passed on to the parents.
How to overcome the prediction:
1. Document your child's educational needs to the IEP meeting and share special education staff; schools should take into account all the information provided by parents
. Parents should be an important participant in the IEP process. If parents do not allow their children to participate in the development of a child's IEP, FAPE may be pre-determined and denied
. If special education staff continues to deny you a return or offers only one option for services or placement, see a state complaint based on IDEA violation
. Get an independent education assessment (IEE) for your child to determine what related and special educational services your child needs. Make sure that the evaluator you choose is not only willing to flesh your child, but a comprehensive and concise report that includes recommendations for the required and special education services.
