Consenting to an IEP does not mean you are stuck with it - or that it will be appropriate for an entire year.

Would you ask your children to wear the same shoes year after year? Their feet grow and change.

So do your child's needs in school!

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn that parents can ask to revise the IEP. It's the law. Find answers to questions about when and why to revise IEPs. 

Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to friends, family members, or colleagues.

How Can I Get My Child's IEP Revised?

Because I signed the IEP earlier, I was told that I cannot ask that the IEP be changed now. Is this true?

No. You can request that an IEP be changed at any time. Learn what problems trigger an IEP meeting to review and revise your child's IEP.


How Many Days After Signing the IEP Can It Be Revised?

I didn’t agree with it, but signed it. How many days do I have to revise it?

The federal law does not specify a “time limit” for requesting a revision.
