Hi, Everyone. We had an annual IEP meeting for our DS1 recently, which included an assessment for CAPD. We disagreed with the test results so the school district sent us a packet for filing for due process. I just wanted to mention that these information packets are created by the school district and may leave out important information which is necessary for a successful due process filing. Why would the district want to help us with filing a complaint against the district? Maybe to trip us up?
I don’t know for sure but I would like to encourage parents to be very cautious when reading materials that the district has created. Better to find an advocate or attorney to help you file legal paperwork. Don’t believe that the school district has your child’s best interests in mind. If it’s going to cost money for services, they have an obligation to protect the best interests of their employer.
