We receive hundreds of questions each week about special education law and advocacy. Can you guess what topic our readers ask about more frequently than any other?

You're right - IEPs!

Do any of these questions and concerns sound familiar?

  • Can my child's IEP be changed or revised?
  • Can I get any training so that I can help my child more?
  • Can I get help for my child during recess?

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate we answer your frequently asked questions about developing your child's IEP, including parent/teacher training, BIPS and PBIS, extracurricular activities, and how to get your child's IEP revised.

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

Struggling During Recess and Activities? Address PBIS in the IEP

Your child’s IEP should identify all of his needs, to provide supplementary aids and services to help him “participate in extracurricular & other nonacademic activities”. 34 CFR 300.320(a)(4)(ii)

Recess is included as a nonacademic activity, as well as extracurricular activities and clubs. 34 CFR 300.117


Why, When, and How Can I Revise the IEP?

Consenting to an IEP does not mean you are stuck with it - or that it will be appropriate for an entire year. Would you ask your children to wear the same shoes year after year? Their feet grow and change. So do their needs in school.

You can request that an IEP be changed at any time.

  • What can I do if the IEP Team wants to change my child's placement?
  • Are ESY services written into the IEP?
  • When should the IEP Team provide a technology device or service?
  • Can the IEP help with my child's behavior problems?

Can the IEP Include Parent & Teacher Training?

Are you concerned because you think the teacher isn't trained to provide the assistance your child needs?

Your child's IEP can and should provide training for her teacher - and for you as a parent. The IEP should contain a statement of these services and clearly designate who is responsible for the training.
