Her mom didn't want to push for accomodations. I still don't understand why.

I've read this on wrightslaw dot com, and a few experiences in a local parent
support group.

The IEP for my younger autistic granddaughter was pretty much worthless in
our local school. After they pushed her into horrible behaviors she was sent to
the district behaviorial school ... where she did so well she wasn't allowed to
return there. But there was no way were sending her back to the local school.
The district advocate got very busy over the summer that year and by the
start of the new school year she had a new classroom for middle and high
school kids with autism with the best teacher I've ever met. And the local
school has to provide transport, which is usually just my GD and the driver.

Ironically this is one of the wealthiest and best rated school districts in our
state. Ha. Maybe if you don't have special needs.
