Yes. At your discretion, you can bring individuals with knowledge or special expertise regarding your child to a meeting including an advocate, friend, regional center case manager (service coordinator), independent assessor, independent service provider or attorney. The parent or school district that invited the individual to the meeting makes the determination of whether an individual has knowledge or special expertise. [34 C.F.R.
