Preparation is Key to Successful IEP Meetings

April 6th, 2015

How will you prepare to make the most out of your next IEP meeting?

Individualized education programs (IEPs) offer special education services to meet children’s learning needs. IEPs are created through a planning process that involves parents and school members. Each IEP meeting is an opportunity to discuss what works and what can be improved to make the most of your child’s school experience.

Since most IEPs are written in the Spring time, it’s best to prepare now. When you prepare for an IEP meeting, you’ll understand the process and you’ll know what you want to talk about and questions that you have. Planning ahead helps you make the most out of the meeting.

If you want to know more about IEPs or need help planning, your care coordinator can assist you – call us at (800) 322-3722.

If you prefer to plan on your own, the Spring 2015 Family Matters Newsletter introduces several resources from it’s lending library.
