HI Iam in Maryland and we have our second IEP meeting tomorrow , I have a draft of the IEP and it looks ok, but doesn't include a lot of the supports out lined in the testing report. I have been very concerned about what to do, we where going to hire an educational advocate but it was just too expensive and I didn't really have an idea of what to expect or if it was necessary at all. I know that the school is trying to do as much as they can while spending as little as possible which I understand as a former teacher but as a Mom I think of this and it makes my blood boil "how dare they not spend every dollar possible and put every support in place right away for my child!!!" Do any of you have any advice for me as I go in to this meeting? Or any advice as to how to proceed afterward so my daughter gets the best support possible?
