Thanks for the feedback everyone.
At Aidan's IEP meeting back in January they told me that next year before the IEP meeting they will be doing all the testing and evaluations again. I will have to ask if they call it an MFE, it sounds the same as yours. One of the reasons that the school wants me to take him back to Children's Hospital is to see if we can get a definite diagnosis. Why do the schools need to have a diagnosis?
Someone, please correct me if I'm wrong.... but, I think that the reason that the school needs a diagnosis is because they can only provide the services if a child either (1) has a diagnosis that qualifies them for the service, or (2) has a documented delay that qualifies them for services.
For example, my nephew could not get OT services for his SID (undiagnosed - but definitely has it) but instead qualified due to a handwriting delay. Long story short, my brother-in-law didn't want him to be "labelled".
Does that make sense?
