parent advocates at computerAs a parent, you are an essential member of the IEP team, you are not a spectator.

You are an active participant who helps develop an IEP with appropriate programming and services for your child.

Do you know what part of the IEP describes your child's unique needs that result from his disability? Present Levels.

All IEPs must include Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance that describe what your child knows and is able to do (or not do).

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn the requirements for Present Levels in IEPs and what IDEA says about tape recording IEP meetings. Find strategies and tips for effective participation in the IEP process.

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