Knowledge is power. Collaborating with your school to create an individualized education plan (IEP) does not have to be a terrifying task or a negative experience. Parents are an integral part of developing their childs IEP and will be stronger advocates when they understand and are comfortable with the components of an IEP and the laws regulating it. This session reviews each part of an IEP and explains how SMART goals, appropriate accommodations, and proper services can be used to develop the best individualized plan for your child.
