All About IEPs

The winning title, All About IEPs, was submitted first by Elizabeth Mueller.

Elizabeth was previously a special education teacher for the visually impaired. After receiving her second masters in Library and Information Science, she is now a reference librarian at the Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library.

Elizabeth was one of the founding members of the Alliance for Citizens with Disabilities in Tampa and has a grown son who was born with Benign Congenital Hypotonia, PDD-NOS and Mild Retardation. Elizabeth says, "He is the apple of my eye and I have fought many battles over IEPs and other issues for him."

As the winner, Elizabeth received a Wright Tote IEP Kit Advocate's Super Pak. 


Getting Quality Services in the IEP

Do you have questions about IEPs? You are not alone!

On the IEP Page at Wrightslaw, you'll find articles, law and regulations, and tips about how to get quality services in your child's IEP. You'll also learn how to use tactics and strategies to negotiate with the school.

The IEP page includes IEP cases, recommended books, and free publications about IEPs.


How to Tweak Your Child's IEP

If the IEP team and all your son’s teachers were abducted by aliens tonight, would the people who stepped in to take their place be able to do it seamlessly based on what is in the IEP?

When a teacher tells a parent "I Don't Care if He Has an IEP," Sue Whitney, Research Editor at Wrightslaw, has excellent advice for this parent on preparing for the IEP meeting, focusing on goals and accommodations, and tweaking her child's IEP.
