SELPA harassment of service providers exposed, see comments made during WESELPA public comment period today. Posting with permission:

Public Comment

My name is Doug Stephey. I am an optometrist with a master’s degree in education. I have been providing Related Services to
special needs kids for more than 30 years. These services are commonly known as vision therapy. Vision therapy has been written into the California education code for roughly 40-50 years. Let me briefly share some of my experiences with the West End SELPA:

1. In early 2018 a
parent asked for a vision IEE and named me as their provider of choice as is their right to do so. The parent was told I wouldn’t sign the agreement because I wouldn’t accept the West End SELPA’s arbitrary and capricious fee cap. I would not and will not accept an arbitrary and

@UplandUnifiedSD hired investigator to do surveillance on parents attorney and private tutor for $2,573.56

Be aware of how @UplandUnifiedSD tax dollars are being spent. Invoices obtained detail how Matthew Burris of the law firm of Fagen, Friedman and Fulfrost,
who represent @UplandUnifiedSD , hired another company (Nationwide Legal) to do surveillance on the attorney and private tutor of a family in the district.

According to their website, Nationwide legal specializes in “undercover investigations”. The website states:
“Do you need a male or female investigator to go undercover to gather valuable information for your business, personal life, court judgments….Are you looking for information regarding someone’s secretive past?.... Hire a skilled Private Investigator to find the truth. ”

Dear #Parents of kids who have an #IEP:

This is coming from a #SpecialEducation Teacher, so please don't misinterpret my intention. Please don't stress out. I've been thinking about this all day. Here's a possible solution: Extended School Year.+
Even if your child has never been recommended for #ESY, there's no time like the present.

Here's how to make a case for it:

1. Document what you are *reasonably* able to do for the time your child is out.

2. Document which svcs were made available/which were not.+
It's important that everything is documented. If your schl is closed 4+ weeks, you can get those weeks back this Summer. Not perfect by any means, but it's a start.

3. As soon as you know when school will reopen, schedule an Amendment Meeting, PLEASE!!!

#DisabilityTwitter #Madison disabled students need your help. Please spread the word & if you have expertise or clout also email the school board. Madison plans to buy a multi-million dollar facility to house (segregate) “alternative” students, aka disabled students, esp BIPOC.
Let @MMSDschools know that disabled students deserve to be integrated & included not isolated & incarcerated. This is the same district where a black disabled girl’s braids were ripped out & a black disabled teen was pinned & punched by 3 police officers. That’s just THIS YEAR!
