Summer School 2014
Parent Rights & Responsibilities in the IEP Process
As your child’s parent, you are a key member of the IEP team. You are not a spectator. You are an active participant.
IDEA gives you the power to make educational decisions for your child. Do not be afraid to use your power. Use it wisely. Don’t be afraid to take charge.
In this six part self-study series for Summer School 2014 you will learn to see your role in the IEP process as equally important as the educational professionals. You will learn:
- about your active parent role as a member of your child’s IEP team
- how to be an equal participant in IEP meetings
- some simple but effective tools for taking and maintaining control
- how to ask questions and make suggestions at IEP team meetings
- how to be prepared to both collaborate and negotiate with the IEP team
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you'll find Part 1: Parent Input at IEP Meetings.
Please don't hesitate to forward this series to other friends, families, or colleagues.
