What happens if your child isn't making progress on their IEP goals? This is when you should meet with the IEP team again.
You can ask for a meeting anytime! It is your legal right.
If you have any concerns about how things are going, ask to talk to the teacher, specialists or the whole team.
If you want a team meeting, it's best to request it in writing. If you email the request, make sure to save it.
Keep records of all your communications with the school!
- Include emails, letters, phone calls, even conversations
- Make sure there's a date
- This can prove what you have asked for, and when
- It may help later on if you have to stick up for your rights
If you talk with a teacher or someone from the school district and agree on something, follow it up with an email.
"It was nice to talk to you today, Mrs. Smith. Thank you for agreeing to make sure Joe sits at the front of the class. That will help him a lot."
