Are You Satisfied With Your Child’s IEP Implementation?

This time of year is generally a very active one for parents of a special needs child and special education teachers.

Many IEP meetings are held in March and April.  We have heard a number of horror stories from parents about their IEP meetings.

Now we would love to hear your IEP experiences: Please take a minute to take a quick poll and drop us a line about your IEP experiences in the comments below.

  • I am very fortunate to have a school district (Caledonia) that works with me instead of against me.  I’ve been in the other place, so I know how blessed I am!

    I am happy with the way my son’s IEP is implemented in school, but there are plenty of areas where it could be improved – for example, OT and ESY were removed from his IEP a few years ago, and the district doesn’t do a very good job of informing parents about parent training and support groups.  But we chose this school district because we knew the team would be open to working out a successful plan for our son – we used to live in a different school district where everything was a battle.

    We’ve rarely had problems with the school.  The only issues have been small and still work out wonderfully in the end.  He’s doing very well.

    unsatisfied, each meeting is a stomachache, people screaming, the psicometrrista and teachers unprepared, do not take into account my comments about what may or may notmake my daughter, psychometrist with evaluation in hand says forget who gave me the result on this the previous year. I would not end, each session is a day of so muchpressure I get sick

    Our school will agree to add accommodations, modifications, and supports to our child’s IEP and then at the next IEP vote to remove it and outvote the parents 13 to 2. They will not provide PWN, the school’s attorney is at every IEP and does not know special ed laws and so on and so forth. Never allow the school to provide and outside evaluation because whoever the school chooses is in the school’s pocketbook. Always get your own evaluations by people you choose and not who the school chooses and pays for. The school system today is as dishonest as the day is long. Rely on your instincts and trust yourself. Learning the ropes the hard way in the belly button of Illinois.  Peggy W.
