Annotation: Under federal law, public school personnel are expected to work with parents as a team to design, review, and modify Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for children designated as having special education needs. While this applies to roughly 10% of all children enrolled in public schools, few of these team participants have received adequate training. With so many complex, challenging, and emotionally charged decisions involved, participating in an IEP meeting can seem like navigating through a minefield. But now there's a practical guide to managing these meetings with a high level of awareness, safety, and confidence. This skills-based book will help administrators, teachers, resource professionals, and parents work as a unified team to design, review, and modify IEPs for children with special education needs. This resource fully addresses effective meeting management, negotiation, the emotional side, and conflict prevention. Written in a user-friendly and conversational style, this much-needed book is supplemented with checklists, outlines, diagrams, and specific examples to make the complex simple. Incorporating the feedback and suggestions of hundreds of special education professionals, this book will be invaluable in creating the best possible IEPs.
