Kid #2 has special needs. You would think this is a post complaining about him, but it’s not. He’s great. What’s not great is having to treat each new school year like war has been declared & I have to get boots on the ground before they do. I’ve already had to get the state involved once, and I had to threaten to do that again today. Things are squared away now (mostly), but only because I’m such a know it all bitch so I made them show and prove & that stopped a lot of dumb shit in its tracks. I hate the IEP process more than I have ever hated anything in my life & it’s so fucking ridiculous that it has to be this way. And if you’re not the kind of parent who defaults to aggression? I don’t know how you do it. Because being nice has yet to get me anywhere with the school system. I start at dickhead & they settle right down and do what the fuck they’re supposed to do, but I’m disgusted that I have to do that so regularly.

It's funny, when I was a kid and going to school, kids with special needs- no matter what kind- got the help they needed without any fuss.

Now, it seems like their parents have to move heaven and earth to make sure they get the education they are entitled to and the help they need to get that education. It's absurd.

You're not the first person I've heard have to get mean with the school system. Another friend has to do this nearly every year, it seems. As if something drastic would change between school years, I guess.}:/
