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 a member of the IEP team you share the responsibility of designing an instruction 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 around the IEP. Therefore, it is extremely important that you play an active role in structuring a specially designed IEP that meets your child’s unique needs.
Unfortunately, developing an IEP is no easy task for today's busy moms. Laws and regulations are alien, acronyms and technical jargon can quickly get confusing, not to mention the fact that the makeup of the IEP team can make parents feel outnumbered and apprehensive about suggesting modifications to the IEP. It’s akin to trying to solve a puzzle without a guide.
The IEP Guy will put his expertise to work for you and be your guide to solving the special education puzzle to overcome any obstacles or challenges you might be facing with your child's school.
