    Answered . No. The school can question and talk to a child on an Iep the same as any other. An IEP is in effect to help modify education to meet your child's individual goals. With that being said if your child is charged with a crime or delinquency action then the IEP may help. I do not believe that questioning or talking to your child would permit a civil suit against the school.
