We have experienced retaliation for advocacy in a different way. The school speech therapist called me a couple of weeks into the year and warned me that my son's self esteem was at risk. To make a long story short I went to the special ed director to complain. Almost two weeks later just before bus time a uniform officer and protective services worker showed up at my door. There was a child abuse complaint by the teacher. It was determined to be unfounded but put us through a month of torture waiting to see what the agency would determine. I have heard of similar situations to mine and the one you share all over the world in email from my website. Thanks for pointing our this situation.

After advocacy I began getting phone calls from teacher that my son was "in the office" for misbehaving. Yet, each time I'd ask what he did, I wasn't given a concrete answer. Soon, it became, we need to evaluate your son for emotional problems caused by home stress. What home stress? I asked. I was never answered.
