Making the IEP Process More Parent-Friendly

Help with Listen Feature Help with Listen Feature

The April 26, 2011 issue of the Special Ed Advocate from Wrightslaw discusses the active role parents can play as a member of their child’s IEP team. The issue gives parents simple but effective tools for asking questions and making suggestions at team meetings, including using a Parent Agenda before the meeting. There’s also a form parents can use to document requests and team decisions. Other sections of the newsletter focus on what to do when school officials won’t respond and how to add punch with a written opinion.
