Tips for parents when discussing the IEP

Consider the school environment from your child’s perspective. They may have priorities that you may not see.Be your child’s voice – champion them and their needs.Consider their successes and challenges.Make a list of things you might want to talk about before the IEP meeting, and if needs be, read these aloud. Tick off what has been addressed, and come back to what hasn’t. Gather any information before hand that might be useful for the discussion, e.g. Reports from SLT’s, school reports, or even a paragraph from the child themselves. Include family and whanau. You are entitled to take a support person with you if you wish.

Before the IEP meeting

Specify who you want to be there – it is the school’s responsibility to organise a time and place, and to ensure the professionals are there. You will need to organise your own family and support personTell the school who you are bringing and find out who they will have at the meetingAsk for a preferred time and place – what suits your child, you and your whanau bestAsk for copies of previous reports and previous IEPsNote – an IEP does not replace a school report – you should receive this as well

At the IEP meeting

If you hear jargon or any terms you don’t understand, ask for clarification. If you don’t feel confident doing that, then perhaps a support person could do so for you. Ensure you have a chance to speak and express your wants and needs for your child. Your input is part of an IEP, and do not let anyone tell you differently. You have as much right, if not more, to ensure that your point is understood. If an interpreter is not there and is required, do not continue with the meeting. Postpone it until one is available. Do not agree to something if you are unsure about it or not happy with it. Remember this is your child’s education, and you and they must be happy with the direction.
