Hi Dawn,

Have you tried discussing your concerns with the school directly, asking about their reasoning in the decision?

Here are some insights to help in building a positive relationship with the school, including some tips for communications with teachers and administrators: http://www.education.com/topic/parent-teacher-relationship/

I'm also including some additional resources below that may support you as you address the concerns you've shared with the school.

I hope Education.com members who are parents of children with special needs will also chime in with their own personal experiences and tips for you.
