What is my role as a parent?
Parents are equal members of the IEP team. Parents should be active participants, including asking for clarification on items that may be confusing or at odds with parental understanding. The team will make decisions within the best interests of the child and understanding all perspectives is critical in that process. Parents should read information that is sent home in advance of IEP meetings and be prepared to discuss goals and services. Parents may also request to convene a meeting of the IEP team at any point.
