OK, I will go first (I think this Forum is a great idea, and I will check back frequently to see what I can learn). I live in a town north of Boston. My child is only in kindergarten, so I do not yet have a lot of experience with this (thankfully, because I find it very stressful). Anyway, so far, what I have learned is that, at least in my town, the school system just fights and fights any changes in the IEP. It's almost like they know people do not want to pay for attorneys and other costs that come with going to mediation or court, so they delay and refuse right up until you reject the IEP. So far, I have been able to get some of what we wanted, so I did not push it any further. But who knows what will happen next year . . .
