Have you ever come out of an IEP meeting only to realize you negotiated away your child’s services to get something you thought he needed more? Are you worried it’s going to happen again, because you’re not sure what you did wrong? Are you preparing for you first IEP meeting, but worried about the truly horrific IEP stories you’ve heard?
You don’t need to worry anymore! Dr. Vaughn K. Lauer, a renowned expert in special education, has written a great guide that will teach you how to work with teachers, therapists, and administrators to get the services your child needs—all of them! Using real stories gathered from real people, Dr. Lauer shows readers how IEP meetings can go wrong and teaches readers what they can do to make sure their IEP meetings go right—every time!
Packed full of stories from parents, advocates, and school staff, this book lays out a structured, collaborative process that IEP teams can follow to determine what a child needs and how to provide services that meet those needs each and every time.
