I've been relying on this forum so much lately, thank you all. My dd age 6 has TBI and is set to start school on Tuesday. We just moved to Virginia this summer after her accident so everything is new to us. We are supposed to be developing her IEP soon. When I went in to the open house tonight the school nurse pulled me aside and told me that she met with the principle and dd's teacher and they are going to tell me next week that they don't feel like the school can meet her needs and they want to send us to a different school in the area. The school is the best in town, but it was built in 1915 and has lots of stairs. Dd can walk independently but would need help going up and down. We had no idea when we choose to live in this neighborhood about all the stairs, we just knew it was a really good school, and it is right around the block. The nurse also said the surrounding schools are terrible and she would never send her kids there. She also said she was not supposed to be telling us any of this, as she could get in trouble, and that she would help us fight it if we wanted. I'm so confused. On one hand I want to fight for dd, but I already felt like some of the teachers were looking at her as if she is an inconvenience and that breaks my heart. What would you do if you were in my shoes?
