Disagreements in the IEP Process
September 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Parental participation is the hallmark of the IEP process, and the key to formulating a truly individualized education program for a child with special needs.
Under the federal law Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), parents are afforded the opportunity to be equal participants in team meetings. Parents and advocates should be knowledgeable in handling disagreements and resolving conflicts in the IEP process.
Topics addressed in this presentation include:
-What are my options if I don’t agree with the proposed IEP?
-What is mediation? Is it different from a facilitated IEP?
-What is due process? Do I need to hire a lawyer to file for due process?
-If I don’t sign the IEP, does that mean my child will remain in the current placement (stay put)?
