Re: Does having Asperger's qualify you for an IEP?

Yes, they're eligible for an IEP. I don't really know much about IEP, but at the very least, your son qualifies for learning accommodations. I wish I had had them when I was in grade school. Luckily, though, I have them, now, even if the first time I could utilize my accommodations was in college... Regardless whether he's an Aspie or has PDD-NOS, you can talk to his teacher about tailoring the subject matter for your son's individual and different learning style.
