F27 - IEP by Design

Oct 26, 2018 3:15pm ‐ Oct 26, 2018 4:15pm


An IEP is only as good as it is useful to you and to the educators who work with your child. Learn how to create an IEP that will be influential in your child’s education. Avoid common mistakes, make strategic decisions, establish a common language, and promote buy-in from all involved by effectively managing the IEP process. Designing a useful IEP can go a long way to ensuring your child’s success in school and minimizing the chaos that often comes with navigating the education landscape.
