IAR - Suspension

Since a number of posts were lost when the hard-drive crashed on our server, I am reposting this information.

I had several parents contacting me for more information about their options. I would ask that you please email me AGAIN. Most of my email for the last 2 weeks disappeared as well.

I have contacted the Broward DFC to verify information that has been posted in the news.

If you are an IAR client and would like to contact me about options, please include your name, child's name, lawyers name and where you are in the process (or at least where you think you are). None of this information will be disclosed to ANYONE without your permission.

Here are the articles about the situation and the suspension:

What is email address to send question on IAR? Do I just post information here? Was reluctant to post confidential information. Please advise.

I would like to know how you can get on the yahoo groups? We have tried several times to sign on and it will not let us even after we have set up our password. I was wondering if Tom can help me.

I did write you before but wasn't sure how to write you confidentially. Please respond and I will give you my information again...Please write as soon as you can. No one else seems to want to call us back.
