Webinar – The IEP Process: Building Partnership Through Conversations
Why are IEP meetings often uncomfortable, awkward, and stiff? Educators and families all have a common goal—to support the development of the child. Yet, educators often feel confused that families act like reluctant participants who are just fulfilling a requirement. And families often feel that they’re viewed as intruders, whose insights and dreams for their child don’t count. In this webinar, our presenter will explain perspectives of both families and educators and suggest questions families should ask to make the IEP process a productive experience for all. Presented by Amy Pleet-Odle, Ed.D., Inclusion Focused Coaching
