Upcoming virtual event: The 5 Most Important Things to Remember When Advocating in an IEP
Monday, April 17, 2023 at 1:00 p.m. PDT
Venue: FB Live
Last time we spoke with Education Advocate Lisa Carey, she walked us through how to prepare for an IEP meeting like a pro, from gathering the most essential information to reviewing the assessments. Now, it’s time to put all that prep into action! Once you’re in the IEP meeting itself, how do you help the other members of your team ensure that the IEP outlines everything your child needs to make meaningful progress in school?
From securing accommodations to related services to appropriately challenging goals, there’s a lot to discuss with your IEP team. Lisa Carey will review her top tips for advocating for your child’s necessary supports in an IEP meeting. Join us to hear from an IEP expert and ask her your questions in the chat!
