If she has a documented disability, and you live in the US, you need a meeting with her IEP team (Individual Educational Plan) and not the clueless principal. If you specifically asked for counseling for her and they said no, document that. Look up Public Law 94-142 (The Rights of Handicapped Children) and get in touch with someone in an advocacy role who will attend an IEP meeting with you, or at least advise you.
Here's a listing of agencies by state: www.ldonline.org...
Good luck. I used to be a school counselor. That principal lacks empathy, professionalism, and knowledge of school law, IMHO.
PS: Request a copy of her current IEP. You will get a better idea of what you can ask for when the team meets.

I just got the number for the Advocate to help with her with school, and the lady I spoke with today was extremely helpful nice. She's even going to meet with the two of them to get idea of how mother and daughter are. Making my sister go. No if's, no and's, no butt's, no headache's, no I don't feel well, no nothing. Your going.
I also have her setup to call these new doctors to give her a new diagnosis and to also get her into a new counseling session, also a they have learning center at the building. The lady really nice, and could tell, I wass just dragged worn down. She set me up good. So, hopefully my dang sister will get her butt on the ball. Even though, I will have to kick it for her.
Why do I have to be mom to a child and an adult? loledit on 17-2-2012 by Manhater because: (no reason given)
