Making the IEP Process Work

The IEP is at its core, an individual plan that should be specifically tailored to meet the needs of your child and how they best learn. There are many methods for helping children with special needs learn, including Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA); Ziggurat; or something customized, and your child has a right to learn using a method that works for them. Educating the school district employees about how your child best learns is crucial to making this process work, or to explaining to an impartial hearing officer why the IEP put in place does not meet your child’s needs.

I am available to attend IEP meetings with you, or if necessary, to help you bring a case against the district, and to represent you in front of an impartial hearing officer (IHO), or in the appeal of an IHO decision to a higher court.
