To locate an attorney who has expertise in this area try wrightslaw.com (yellow pages) or copaa.org. Some may be willing to take a case for no cost or low cost.

Several years ago we attended an advocacy event you spoke at and learned about the Parent Input Statement. We began successfully using it at least annually for our child's AR/IEP. My child in now in High School (suburban chgo). We had an AR/IEP meeting this week and per usual, had our Parent Input Statement. When it was not attached to the IEP, we were told that the Team (school team) needs to review our Parent Input Statement and will then determine if it is appropriate to attach to our child's IEP!!!! I did reply reminding them that as the child's parents we are equal members of the team. We are allowed to provid and share information about our child and our Parent Input Statement fulfills the requrement in the Conference Report "Parental Concerns for Enhancing their Child's Education". We also requested that if they refuse to implement anything ourlined in our Parent Input Statement, (it includes accommodations and modifications) that we ask for written notification as to why they refuse to take xyz action. This is the same high school that when I recently requested the opportunity for myself and outside neuropsychologist to observe I was told the district discourages it due to: confidentiality, safety, and disruption of students. I recently replied reminding them of 9/2009 Public Act Legislation permitting parents/professionals opportunities for school observations. Are they playing games with us? We are strong and knowledgeable advocates. Should we request mediation?
