What's My Role?
As a parent you are an essential member of the IEP team. You are an active participant. You are the expert on your child and have a unique role to play in the IEP process.
Your role is similar to that of a project manager with a long term plan. When you Become Your Child's Case Manager, you will feel more informed, in control, and part of the decision-making process.
