Is it worth it to make the effort to build an effective team? It sure is!

Your child benefits the most from effective team building.

Who does IDEA require on the IEP team? May you ask others?

Other team members might include professionals, related service providers, consultants, a friend, family member, minister, priest, or rabbi.

As a parent member, you can invite people who have special knowledge and expertise about your child to IEP meetings. 20 U.S.C. 1414(d)(1)(b)(vi)

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn who IDEA says is part of the IEP Team. Find out who parents can invite to be part of the team and strategies to use for creating an effective team.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

Effective IEP Teams: Reality or Impossible Dream?

What happens at IEP meetings when staff and parents come together to develop an effective plan for your child?

It is basically the same set of people.  What is different about an effective team?


Can We Invite an Outside Professional to be Part of the IEP Team?

The school says,... outside professionals cannot be considered a part of the IEP team.

How should you respond?


Can't Get Your Doctor to the IEP Meeting?

IEP meeting tomorrow and your doctor is out of town! What next?

Think out of the box. Find a helpful strategy to use when a provider is not able to attend the IEP meeting.


Friend or Foe: Is My Attorney on My Side?

Think about it. Don't assume that because opposing attorneys are civil, or even friendly, to each other - there is a conspiracy.

Your attorney took your case. He is on your side.
