We always advise parents to use tactics and strategies when making requests - you are more likely to succeed when you do.

Ask questions, lots and lots of questions. Use questions to raise issues, overcome obstacles, and to identify solutions.

  • Do you know what you can ask the school to do for your child?
  • Do you know what questions to ask in the IEP meeting?
  • Do you know what to do when the school ignores your requests?

Effective Advocates are not afraid to ask questions, then listen carefully to answers.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn why and how to ask the questions that will make you a better advocate for your child.

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

Learn to Ask Questions, Get Services

Your goal is to get the services your child needs without being a "Yappy Parent."

You'll find out how not to shoot yourself in the foot by being the know-it-all parent. If you take over the role of "expert," you leave no role for the educators.


5 Ws + H + E Questions

Advocates know how to use 5 Ws + H + E questions to discover the true reasons for positions the school staff takes.

Using 5 W’s + H + E questions will help move the IEP team from abstract proposals to specific details.


The IEP & the Art of Asking Questions

Parent as advocate---it’s your job to help guide the IEP process. One way to do that is to use questions to gather information and prompt meaningful discussions.

The answers you get often depend on the questions you ask. Get basic guidelines to help you hone the art of asking questions.
