    We met with her for a consultation for $250 in which she basically told us what we already read in Wrightslaw publications (which she read from during our consultation) especially his volume on Special Education law. Our middle school child was gifted with ADD & ODD and experts recommended boarding school. Allison said a IEP would never be granted despitte his problems because he didn't have a documented LD and was passing his public school subjectts with Cs and Ds. We were disappointed after our consultation in that she felt seeking an IEP was a waste of time. We felt she didn't have much experience with dual exceptional children, i.e. gifted with ADD, ODD and cognitive slowness in seeking IEP. She could have been more passionate and supportive of our son's right to an IEP, more willing to seek an IEP for us. We felt she was only interested in giving 1 hour consultations for $250 which is the amount we paid her.
