Every year I have a PPT for my Aspie in May or June where we decide on accommodations and modifications and the following fall it is always 2 or 3 months (or more!) before the school starts implementing them. Is there any requirement under the federal law that specifies how long a school district can take to start providing

From what I understand once you sign the IEP they have 10 days to put everything into place. I think that if you did the IEP in June, when school began in the Fall so should have all the things in it. There should have been no delay at all.

Thanks. I was pretty sure this wasn't right but I just wanted confirmation. I guess it's time for my annual nasty phone call to the principal : )

It should start the first day of school.

like the other poster said, it should start right at the beginning of the new school year. Let us know how it goes....I make several of those annual nasty phone calls myself.
