Remember, Parents Hold The Power In An IEP Meeting

As a parent in an IEP meeting, remember;

  • Ask a lot of questions…
  • Advocate positive change…
  • Understand the proposed plan in its entirety before leaving the room.

Though it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and intimidated during an IEP meeting, it’s important to remember that as a parent you hold the power.

Discuss your concerns and ask questions until you feel 100% confident that the proposed plan is the best course of action for your child.

Think Differently About Education.

We Believe…

All children are born with the innate ability to reach their OWN excellence.

That a growing group of children don’t fully prosper in overpopulated classrooms.

Through technology and one on one learning, their future path to success can be made clear again.
