The IEP Meeting

After an evaluation has been done, the IEP247 meeting will be scheduled. As noted earlier, you are entitled under law to attend and participate in this meeting, and you must be given ample notification of the time and place. You should also request a copy of the evaluation that was done prior to the meeting so you have time to review it.

The Families and Advocates Partnership for Education (FAPE) suggests considering the following:

  • What is your vision for your child - for the future as well as the next school year?
  • What you are child's strengths, needs and interests?
  • What are your major concerns about his or her education?
  • In your child's education thus far, what has and has not worked?
  • Does the evaluation fit with what you know about your child?

While the IEP meeting is meant to develop an educational plan for your child, it is also an opportunity for you to share information about your child, your expectations and what techniques have worked at home. If for some reason you do not agree with the proposed IEP, you do have recourse.
