Don't let the schools just tell you anything when you go to a IEP. The IEP( Individualized Education Plan) is a legal document that the school have to follow to the letter. There is a website called PAI.org that will help you a lot with educating you on your rights. I am a parent advocate or partner for a mental health agency and I fight for parents rights but also am a mediator between schools and parents. It is important for the two entities to get along in order to achieve the best interest for the child. I am available to answer any questions that I can. What I don't know I will find out for you or tell you how to find it. I do live in California and I am not sure if the laws are different in other states. If they are it is not hard to find out what the laws are in your state.

I wish I knew about you before my son's annual review. Thanks for making yourself available.

Thank you!! They (IEP's) can be very intimidating, I (as a special educator) always try to make sure my parents understand everything....as the mother of a special education student, there are lots of teachers out there that don't get it.....it's incredibly frusterating.

Hello. My name is Maria and I live in Oregon. I know that Oregon Parent Training and Information Center is state wide and they help with IEP's too. Their website is: www.orpti.org and if you go to resources and links it should direct you to where one is located in your state. Their is also a website called: Wrightslaw.com and it's about IEP's too. I hope this helps.
