My daughter is hard of hearing and is in the third grade. last year the previous School exited her out of her IEP for speech however left her as the primary of art of hearing. They opened her up a 504 plan which was never followed. She's at a new school this year and the school psychologist said she cannot have an IEP since she is not behind and deaf and hard of hearing services cannot stand alone. She says that each School District can make up their own rules regarding deaf and hard-of-hearing and what can and cannot stand alone is this true?
I'm just curious if because she is hard of hearing does she automatically qualify for an IEP regardless of if she's behind or not as schooling does get more difficult past 3rd grade. Also if she does not qualify for an IEP and is put on a 504 but is not followed what is the process for that?
