My child's school does not want to provide an IEP for SPD.
My son could not be a better poster child for SPD. He has ISSUES. The school district has said things like, "If you let us label him autistic we can service him." Or, "He's just not bright and he is doing the best he can."
I teach Autistic children and he does have some characteristics, but not all of them, and as for bright, when the pre-school first steps lady tested his IQ it was in the high average range, and IQ is pretty static. You either have an innate ability to learn or you don't...
What steps do I need to take to get him serviced as a child with health impairments. Since it isn't in the DSM-IV they say it isn't a valid disorder. I am very frustrated and need some outside perspective and help in what to do.
