Below you will find a IEP checklist to guide you through your next IEP meeting, tips for virtual IEP meetings, to help your child adjust to being at home, and an “All About Me” sheet that is great for sharing information about your child with their team.
About Me Page
Back to school is upon us and many of our kids will be returning virtually, rather than in person. Many will not get the typical meet and greet with their teachers that they are used to. So how will their teacher get to know them? Well, one way is to provide your child’s teacher with a one sheet page all about your child. The page I created even has a section to share what worked well for your child while distance learning in the spring and what didn’t. Remember your child’s team can’t help if they don’t know what to help with.
Use this IEP checklist to help you prepare for and ROCK your next IEP meeting. Remember IEPs don’t have to be complicated. If you are feeling overwhelmed this checklist can help.
Virtual IEP Meeting Tips
Just because school is closed, doesn’t mean IEP meetings aren’t taking place. In fact most schools have moved to some version of a virtual IEP meeting; either phone based or via video conference which is making many parents nervous. No worries, I have put together a tip sheet for parents to help lessen your anxiety and help parents feel prepared for this change.
Adjust to home after schools have closed
