bored tired frustrated student girlThe law, federal regulations, and commentary describe what IEP teams must do when a child's behavior "impedes the child's learning or the learning of other children."

Do not assume that your child's IEP team is knowledgeable about these requirements.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn about the right to FAPE, the role of the IEP team in behavior and discipline issues, functional behavior assessments, and behavior intervention plans.

Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

Help! The school had my child with autism arrested. The charges were dismissed but I am afraid this will happen again. What can I do? Should the IEP team be involved?

Pat Howey explains that the IEP Team must review and revise your child's IEP to ensure that he receives appropriate positive behavioral interventions, supports, and other strategies.
