Yes, the school does not want him there at all, and are not willing to work with me finding a volunteer aide, or anything. It just boggles my mind, because at the original IEP meeting everybody's...

I will certainly take a look at those links and see what I can do. It sounded...

Is your son going to be old enough for K next year? Even if he's not, I think it would be a good idea to try and have him reassessed through the school district.
