IEP Considerations

About Course

IEPs are usually large, complex documents with a lot of parts.

In this course, we break down and do some in-depth examination of some of the components that are part of or surround an IEP.

  • Behavior, including Functional Behavior Assessments and Behavior Plans 
  • OSEP & OSERS: Learn how to use the “Dear Colleague” and Guidance Letters from OSEP (US Office of Special Education Programs) in your IEP advocacy
  • Special education aides and paraprofessionals: How to ask for one, what their duties, responsibilities and qualifications should be and much more
  • IDEA surrogates: what they are and how to become one
  • Removing Services: The school personnel want to remove supports and services, you're against it. How to proceed
  • School Refusal: An unfortunate trend in special education and what to do about it
  • Bullying: Disabled students are more than 7x more likely to be bullied than their non-disabled peers. Here's how to handle it.
  • Private services: their role in your child's development
  • Post Pandemic: Sure, the pandemic is over. But has your child regained all lost skills?

And much more!
