It's IEP time! Questions and concerns are pouring in from parents and teachers who will be meeting with the IEP Team.

  • Are you confused by the IEP process?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed or intimidated?

For the next several weeks we will publish a series about IEPs. When you master this information, you will feel more confident and more prepared for your IEP meeting!

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will find guidance about taking control at IEP meetings and tactics and strategies to improve your advocacy skills for getting a quality IEP.

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

IEP Team Members: Who's on the Team?

At a meeting today, our sped director told us that "parents are not a part of the IEP Team." Say What?! Parents are and always have been members of the IEP team.

What's My Role?

As a parent you are an essential member of the IEP team. You are an active participant. You are the expert on your child and have a unique role to play in the IEP process.

Your role is similar to that of a project manager with a long term plan. When you Become Your Child's Case Manager, you will feel more informed, in control, and part of the decision-making process.
