I have a couple of questions in regards to the laws surrounding IEP's.
We have recently moved from California to Pennsylvania and are having a difficult time getting services started. My son is 4 1/2 and his IEP calls for OT, Speech therapy, and 15hrs/week of highly structured classroom time in which he receives them. The IEP doesn't dictate a specific provider for these services, simply that they are the services he requires. Here in Philly they are writing the IEP specific to where he will receive services, and we are having difficulty in finding an appropriate school to attend. I have visited 2 that are not suitable for various reasons and could spend a few more weeks visiting more until we agree on one. The problem is that until I sign the IEP they are not giving him any services. I refuse to sign the IEP until it reflects the school needs, I know that if it only says the OT and speech that is all I can hold them too.
