      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.

      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.
