I read somewhere that one of the biggest mistakes parents make is trying to be too much of a friend to school personnel and not wanting to make waves. My husband and I have been guilty of this We thought if we were friendly to these people and try to get along and not be too hard on them maybe they would be more likely to see to it that our son got what he needed. My son wasn't getting his speech as was written in his IEP. We hated to complain because we liked the speech pathologist and didn't want to get her into trouble. We finally decided that we had to do what was best for our son and actually filed a complaint with the state board of education and won. I would try to nip this thing in the bud before it gets worse.
