I just had a conference with Elizabeth’s intervention specialist. It is IEP time for us. I am so happy
that I have a great relationship with the teacher and that she and I is so like-minded in our goals for ELizabeth. I think that having the communication piece of the puzzle in place before the IEP meeting allows for a better chance of success.
I feel very comfortable talking to her and sharing goals and thoughts and she is so willing to LISTEN and not just HEAR me. I have learned there are many ways to approach an IEP and there are many ways to make sure the IEP really fits your child’s needs.
But the biggest part of this is the you have good communication and a shared belief in the child.
Good luck to those who are approaching the IEP table.
