I am licensed as a mental health counselor in the State of Florida. I am also certified as a behavior analyst. I work for a school system. If a child has an IEP under the ESE program and I warn the school the child is a danger to others if allowed to return to school--if the IEP team overrides my vote and allows the child to return to school--am I liable if/when the child hurts someone? Also--should I decline from being listed as a service provider on the child's IEP due to my concern? Or--to say it better...if I am listed as a service provider on the IEP--(such as providing behavior services) am I liable when the child hurts someone even though I will sign a statement indicating my disagreement with the IEP team decision in that the child is allowed to be on a school campus.
