Chances are, she is the same as the rest. Typical socialists promoting anti-American ideologies. Be careful when putting your child into the hands of the government. This should be starting to be more evident over the last few years as to why not to do this.

As a suggestion, look for someone in the civie world to help make whatever determination that needs to be made. Then YOU, tell the school what YOU need and not what they want you to want. Do not allow yourself to be put into a position where this school system is telling you what you need, or any other government agency for that matter.

Just sayin'...

Take charge and you tell the school what you need, do not let them determine this for you. I cannot stress that enough.

I am not sure, my issue was just the opposite. The school determined that my child was a special needs student, when my child was not. Far from it. Teachers/Administrators tend to like to play doctor and make diagnoses when they have absolutely no authority or education to do so.

"Person," Thanks for the resources. "ISee", how were they able to justify making those decisions about your child? Was Ms. Kathy Dykes involved?

Because my child fit a profile, and does have a medical condition but in no way does it affect their learning ability. I am not sure how they justified, but they just did it. It was a battle from then on out. They rejected my opinions and I rejected theirs, we came to a heated em passe. No, Kathy Dykes was not involved in this case as I recall, it got to a point I just started ignoring them altogether.

Was there any retaliation against or negative consequence for your child?

Kathy Dykes over at Peddler's Mall on New Circle Road is very sweet and recycles thrown away wooden objects into furniture. This helps the environment and decreases carbon emissions.

This person you are discussing sounds like they might be difficult but I wanted to point out that not all Kathies are mean and that Dykes in a common name in Kentucky

Thank you "Candy"

I was able to find Ed Dove on the internet. How expensive is it to talk to him?

Who are Tanya Stugill and Rachel Baker? Should I be worried about them. If they are special ed teachers or therapists do I need to teach my child be be quiet around them?

Yes you should. I thought Rachal was better but heck no. They are all alike, they have one agenda and that only to look out for themselves. Beside that they are troublemakes, a waste of time. They have no more business doing a or any job there anymore. The other commenter is correct. You are you own best advocate. You must choose to protect your child and yourself.
Tonya sturgill is the biggest 2 face, gossip, liar. I have no respect for her period. Have just been around her and watched her.

My experience was negative when all of them came into the picture. They made it so so much worse. The horrible treatment your child receives and the parent.

Birds of a Feather all flock together.

Tanya is the "autism" specialist. What she needs to accept is the parent will always be a better specialist then her. RachelBaker is over the high schools spec Ed. Ed dove takes payments is worth every penny. Just remember anyone who can be given a disability is nothing bu a money amount to te state and school.

I would have to agree with Candy that Ed Dove is your best chance at gaining a voice in Fayette County. He has been very successful against FCPS over the years and really offers your best chance to gain some concessions from them in the end. Without him, they simply brush you aside and keep the endless circle spinning to nowhere.

He will give you a very candid evaluation of your case with a simple consultation. He is not really liked by FCPS as far as special education goes, but that is exactly what you need at this point. He will force them to legally do what the federal law stipulates they must do for your child.

For me, Mr. Dove went to an IEP and just listened never said a word. We started showing things like teaching my 15 yr old sn nursery rhymes, forging his name to paper work, email from the facilitator to other teachers saying you know it is teachers against parents, you go girlfriend. The looks on all their faces was speechless. My son is not Rey verbal but he is very intelligent an he surpassed nursery rhymes years ago. Mr. Dove gave e a few hings to try enforce he got involved. So far they wired so I did not have to use Mr. Dove in a lawsuit ut I would Ina heartbeat. Very knowledgeable, honest, he are payments while working on ur case. You have not really said what our issue is soI hoped I helped you.

Thanks.

I am really worried about all this I am hearing about FCPS.

Is the new superintendent going to replace these people soon?

Is it just better to avoid Lexington? Which surrounding county would be better?
