What to Bring to Your IEP Meeting
Prepare a presentation. Bring a written list of questions and subjects to discuss, so that you don’t forget anything important. When Collin started kindergarten, his dad created a slide-show presentation that illustrated his concerns. It ended with two photos of Collin, side by side: One picture showed him smiling and the other showed him crying. The family left the slide up and asked, “What kind of year will we make for Collin?”
Invite a friend. Ask a friend or family member to come with you to act as a second set of ears and eyes. Your surrogate can take notes, so that you don’t miss or misunderstand anything important. After the IEP meeting, while everything is fresh in your mind, review your friend’s notes, jotting down questions.
