  1. I was online reading Lisa's article about IEE's. Lisa states several reasons for requesting an IEE: 1. the district does not employ qualified evaluators for a specific evaluation 2. you disagree with the district evaluation 3. the evaluation was done by outdated methods 4. the test protocol is not appropriate for the situation like autism etc. While reading, I thought to myself a few things. Do I as the average parent know who is actually qualified to do these Evaluations? Is it just any old school psychologist? Do they have to prove credentials or provide certificates to me? How do I know if the model they used is wrong or outdated? Is there a standard? Can someone direct me to more specific reading on what is required for testing/evals? Or examples of specific testing done right? For Reference: I have child with developmental delay, behavioral challenges and Autism Spectrum Disorder. She just turned 5 and will attend kindergarten in the Fall. Currently in ABA therapy full time. Not in preschool at this time. Thanks!
  2. Hi all, This question has been bugging me for a while. I have a daughter with Autism that attended preschool services in Arizona with our school district for a year and a half. Once we got ABA therapy services, we found that ABA could offer much more help for my daughter than the school ever could. When we would ask questions at our IEP meetings the answer we seem to always get is “Preschool services are limited.” Is that true? How can I examine what is the actual truth about preschool services for Arizona schools? It has been a while since I read through the school's procedural safeguards, but I remember them being pretty vague. Can you direct me to any specifics in IDEA about preschool? Mainly, I think I feel pretty alone in our decision to stop preschool services for a while. Has anyone else been in my boat before? Even if you are from another state, what happened for you and your child when you hit kinder transition time after taking a break from preschool? Thanks. Look forward to hearing from you.
