I’m a mom to a 17 year old learning disabled dd. She has an IEP and we have
homeschooled since she was in first grade. She has discalculea,a processing
issue and ADD which affects how she learns and how quickly. The IEP has been a
blessing now that we are ready for college. Most colleges have a special ed
dept and services for kids who learn differently, so for us we want that
verification for services. At the college level, it enables her to have extra
time for tests, use of calculator, a note-taker if needed, ability to record
lectures, etc., things that will put her on an even playing field with ‘normal’
students. She sees a neurologist every year to review her meds and check
progress, one of the best things I’ve ever done.
I am curious as to what you are referring to when you say it will be on his
“record for life.” Bri’s IEP and diagnosis are only on her school/neurological
records, not her general medical records because we don’t deal with the doctor
for those issues. These records don’t follow you into adulthood, at least as far
as the school records go. I was just curious as to your reasoning.
When there is no wind, row.

If your child is diagnosed and does have something wrong and you need an IEP
through the school would you not allow that? Just wondering.
