From this lens, you will write a two-part paper demonstrating your knowledge and understanding of the IEP team and strategies to ensure the meeting is as effective as possible.
In Part I, imagine an IEP team is meeting for the very first time to determine if a child has a disability and is eligible for special education services. Identify each legally required IEP team member and describe their role in the process. Provide at least two examples of specific information each team member might share at this meeting.
In Part II, develop a process a school might use to ensure the IEP meeting is collaborative and meaningfully includes the parent or legal guardian and child in the process. Your process might include such things as an agenda, a glossary of commonly used terms, specific facilitation techniques, and other evidence-based or research-based strategies you discover. Include at least five strategies in your process.
