Special Education/school not scheduling meeting or observation appropriately

Mr Runner, the people doing this are the principal and someone in a similar position as you implied. Do you know how long due process can take? I don't know what else I can do. I am going to have to go myself as I cannot afford a lawyer. I read on the wrightslaw site that the law favors observations but schools routinely do this. I have tried everything to resolve it. They are doing this with intent to prevent us from seeing what is going on. Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

I have been an education advocate representing students and parents for six years. My experience includes: representing my clients in IEPs, SSTs, Due Process, review assessment results for my clients, and mediations. I have represented clients with learning disabilities, autism, Downs Syndrome, cognitively challenged, emotional problems, learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, and physical disabilities. I have also represented clients to County Mental Health Departments and Regional Centers. My clients range from pre-school to college students in many states.

I have a degree in Mathematics from the University of California with minors in Psychology and Physics. I also studied applied statistics in psychology at the graduate level. I have taught college classes, conducted seminars, written articles for various publications, and testified as an expert witness.
