So many changes happen at the beginning of the school year.

You think you know who your child’s IEP team is, but don’t get caught by surprise.

You must:

1. Find out everyone who is working with your child AND their contact information. 

2. Contact each IEP team member to introduce yourself and assure they have a copy of your child’s IEP.

3. Document your conversation with each person via email, if you had a verbal communication.

Just last Thursday and Friday I was contacted by 3 parents who thought they knew their child’s team, but team members were changed without notice.

As an effective IEP team leader, YOU must take the initiative to know your team!
