What to Bring

    • Goals you have for the coming year — put your child’s needs and preferences at the center of any discussion

    • Examples of strategies and interventions that have and have not worked

    • Last year’s IEP — if you can find it!

    • Parent participation form (this can be a link to the actual planner that is under the “Before the IEP” section)

    • Positive mindset and willingness to try new things — look at the meeting as an opportunity for growth and a chance to make things better

    • Realization that not everyone may agree — try not to be judgmental or defensive

    • Commitment to collaboration — acknowledge and respect each team member

    • Special Education Meeting Planner
