In this video, Stephanie from Our LANDing Crew discusses strategies she has learned while raising multiple children with autism for having an effective IEP (Individualized Education Plan) developed for the upcoming school year.
Stephanie discusses the importance of gathering information on your rights as a parent of a child who needs an IEP, as different states may have different standards for a child’s educational care. Another part of preparing for an IEP is to gather relevant documentation, such as your child’s written diagnosis, as developing IEP’s is a complex legal process as well. A professional or other support person can also help parents to be prepared to successfully advocate for their child. Lastly, it is important to communicate with your child about their experience at school, in order to best come up with solutions that address their needs.
