Do you feel anxious when you receive a notice about the annual IEP review meeting? Do you have questions about IEPs? You aren't alone!
The best antidote to feeling overwhelmed and confused in IEP meetings is having accurate, reliable information. Our next several issues will help you prepare for the spring IEP season.
- IEPs must be reviewed annually.
- Parents are part of the team that develops and reviews the IEP.
- IEP goals should be specific, measurable, and tailored to the unique needs of your child.
- Parents can request an IEP review or revision at any time.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn that IDEA requires the entire IEP Team meet at least annually to discuss a child’s progress and determine the contents of the IEP (34 CFR § 300.324). Find out what happens at the annual IEP review.
We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

Your child’s IEP drives her program, placement, and services – NOT what the school has available.
