When you learn that an IEP meeting is scheduled, it's time to get ready.
The keys to successful IEP meetings are planning and preparing, organizing information, and knowing how to present your requests.
Create a pre-meeting worksheet. As you prepare, you will be able to answer more of these questions:
- What do you want?
- What does the school want?
- What action do you want the school to take?
- How motivated are they to give you what you want?
- What will prevent them from giving you what you want?
- How can you address their concerns and fears?
This week in our IEP series - you'll find advocacy "how to" tips from the experts.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn about powerful and effective tools to help you take control at IEP meetings and strategies to help you control the outcome.
We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
