You may have noticed there is a lot of paperwork!
It can be helpful at the meeting and through the whole process to have a way to organize it all.
Many parents create an IEP binder: a 3-ring binder with folders to keep all of the paperwork together.
Here's what you can do:
1. Put these documents in the IEP binder:
Previous progress reports from the school
Notes from meetings or conferences
Reports from outside service providers, like therapists
Medical documents and test results
Emails, letters or other input with teachers or school staff that may be relevant
Most Important: Your list of questions and thoughts (from the last screen)
2. It is also helpful to get familiar with the IEP form before the meeting.
