ATTENDING IEP MEETINGS
We can certainly attend the Individual Educational Plan (IEP) with you. Our goal, though, is to prepare you to attend the meeting on your own for a few reasons. First, you need to work with the school district for many years to come. We do not want to add any tension to the meeting. Next, we want to empower you to be the BEST advocate for your child. Finally, this may be opposite of most businesses, but we want you to put your money towards your family rather than spending it on us battling the school.
The process should be non-confrontational. It will be when you have the information you need and everyone keeps the focus on the child's progress.
Sometimes, the situation is less than desirable and we need to attend. That's okay. We will attend the meeting with you and discuss the matter WITH you, not FOR you. Our presence at one meeting may be enough to make the process smoother in the future.
Contact us if you'd like us to attend your child's IEP meeting.
