The doctor can not make the determination of whether an IEP is needed or not. That cannot only be determined by the child study's team evaluation based on the scores of their testing. IEPs are harder to attain than 504s however you can get a paraprofessional with a 504 depending on the reasons why you feel you need one

It depend on what the paraprofessional is needed for . My son would sometimes have difficulty paying attention due to side effects of both the epilepsy and the meds. The paraprofessional is there to keep him on track. However the aide by law in my state can not administer his emergency meds so we have private nurse at his school too. I had both added to his IEP. Doctor recommendations helped. Do you have an IEP or 504 plan
