14 Feb The Basic Do’s and Don’ts of IEP meetings – produced by Julia Clark
Having trouble preparing for an upcoming Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meeting? Learn how to prepare and communicate during an IEP meeting by watching this video.
These two mock IEP meetings demonstrate what to do and what not to do in terms of preparation and behavior during the meeting. Though it is primarily for school staff, the video’s lessons can apply to parents as well.
What We Learned from this Video:
- An IEP meeting’s success is dependent on communication, sound information and preparation.
- Be punctual. Being on time displays professionalism and shows that you care about doing this correctly.
- Be sure to have the proper documentation on hand.
- Pay attention; not only is it important for learning and retaining important information, but it also shows that you are serious.
As a parent, you should have all relevant documents and information ready before going into an Individualized Education Plan meeting for your child on the autism spectrum. Be sure to check out the rest of our free videos on education to feel more informed and prepared for your next IEP meeting.
