Good luck! You are doing a great job advocating for him, but it helps to have someone else in your ring. Consider hiring an advocate, if possible. One of the best decisions we have made. Just to read the 504, or to attend mtgs. They may recommend an IEP if the disabilities affect learning. while you wait for psychiatrist, it’s your right to ask the school to test if they haven’t already. They would have a required timeline to get it done. You could compare their results with the psychiatrist.
