So I am a bit confused as to how the assessments work for an IEP. My son is in 5th grade and reading at a 3rd grade level in a public school. Had a student study team meeting this morning and they have finally agreed to assess him. I had outside testing done about 18 months ago so I already know he is dyslexic. It has just taken this long to get them to do anything!
Anyways my son is now having major anxiety about school and we are dealing with school refusal. I am worried that the school is doing too little too late so I am researching some other options such as homeschooling or possibly a private school that specializes in dyslexia.
They said the assessment can take up to 60 days to perform and I just don't want my son to suffer for another 2 months.
So a few questions:
If I pull him now would they still have to do an assessment or do I need to start that request over again as a homeschooling student?
If I signed up with a Charter Homeschool would they be the ones that would have to do the assessment?
Also if he qualifies for an IEP would a public school still develop that for use in a private school (if we went that route)?
Just a little confused as to how I should proceed!
