IEP Changes without an IEP Meeting? YES!

Uncategorized Sep 17, 2020
Do you need an IEP meeting?
 
Maybe. Maybe not!
 
So many changes can happen within an IEP without all gathering around the IEP table.
 
-Goal Changes

The entire IEP process was different. She can’t explain to me how, but she just said that I need to message you. I’ve always wanted to work from home and help special needs families. Can you teach me?”

I said no for a very long time when I got those requests. I’ve been doing this for two decades and wasn’t sure I could package up all my tools and teach someone else how to do this because it was DIFFERENT.
