How do I go about getting an aide/paraprofessional for my son? He's 11 and really needs an aide at school but I'm getting the run around on getting one. How did any of you get an aide at school? What did you have to do exactly. I know I need an ARD meeting and to request a paraprofessional but what next? The school says they've never heard of anyone getting an aide. What do I tell them and where can I find the exact legal verbage?
