Check out our new IEP Page. This page has links to the IEP Quiz, articles and tips about IEPs, legal information and cases, free resources, and book reviews and recommendations. 

We are redesigning the Wrightslaw site. After you visit our new IEP page, drop us a line and let us know what you think about our new look. 


2. How and Why to Tape IEP Meetings by Brice Palmer

If you are having a dispute about your child's special education program, it's a good idea to tape IEP meetings. In this new article, Vermont advocate Brice Palmer explains the nuts and bolts of taping meetings


3. How to Prepare for IEP Meetings by Parent Attorney Sonja Kerr

Parents often say that when they go to IEP meetings, the school staff won't answer their questions or listen to their requests. Parent attorney Sonja Kerr has a good approach that parents can use when caught up in the IEP meeting quagmire.

If you are preparing for an IEP meeting, read Sonja Kerr's tips about IEP meetings, FAPE, and measuring progress. Learn why Sonja says, "This is like playing 20 questions with the devil!"


4. How to Use a Parent IEP Attachment by Judy Bonnell

What happens when you make a request for your child's IEP? Do you know what was accepted and what is still on the table? You can use a simple form to track your requests. 

This form will help eliminate worries that someone will drop the ball, sidestep a request, or forget. The IEP team knows what issues have been resolved and what issues are still on the table. If you use this system, the IEP process may be more "parent friendly." 

Get this Tip and the "IEP Attachment" in html.

Get the "IEP Attachment" as a pdf file.


5. New IEP Books 

The IEP is the heart of your child's special education program. We pulled together a new page of books about IEPs, goals and objectives that may help you write good IEP goals and objectives.
