Working on your child's IEP should not feel like you’re trying to solve a Rubik’s cube.
Is the IEP satisfying your child’s unique needs?
If not, you should not lose sight of the fact that as an equal member of the IEP team you share the responsibility of designing an education program that meets your child's unique needs.
The IEP is the heart and soul of special education. Think of it as the heliocentric model of our solar system. Just as the planets orbit the sun, so do placement, programs, and services revolve around your child's IEP. Therefore, it is extremely important that you play an active role in structuring a specially designed IEP that actually meets your child’s unique needs.
Unfortunately, developing an IEP is no easy task for today's busy moms. Laws and regulations are difficult to understand, acronyms and technical jargon can quickly get confusing, not to mention the fact that the IEP team composition can make parents feel outnumbered and apprehensive about suggesting modifications to their child's IEP. It’s like to trying to solve a puzzle without a guide. But... guess what? Problem solved!
