Laura Posted February 24 Share Posted February 24 I'm considering filing a Child Find violation against my school district. My child was identified by the school in 9th grade. Now, the school can't meet their needs because the needs are so great. My child was in advanced classes not long ago. Now,they're in remedial classes and not on the college track. They're failing a class and will likely need to re-take it next year. They don't have the skills to execute work, although cognitively they are able to understand and do the work. I am working with several outside specialists and spending hundreds to thousands on therapy and advocacy every month. I will need to spend this kind of money for the foreseeable future. We are not wealthy. My child's trajectory has been completely changed because they weren't identified when they were younger. I want my claim to be successful. I have an email from a teacher telling me to look into ADD specifically. It's from almost 2 years ago. And, I don't want to throw her under the bus. I know she was trying to be helpful at the time. I have emails from over the years that express various concerns. Perhaps something there will be helpful. We didn't know about special ed and how to request services. I feel like someone should have told us how to request an evaluation for services when my child was younger. What other documentation would show that the school knew my child needed help and should have been referred for evaluation? I'm meeting with a lawyer in a few weeks.
