Why can't Special Education be easier?!?!
I hear it at every one of my workshops from both parents and teachers.
The truth is that most of the time Special Education struggles become 10x more intense because nobody wants to talk about the tough issues.
I mean, what teacher really wants to tell a parent that their classroom is not the right fit? (Parents... did you know that teachers often feel like their risking their job if they tell you this?)
No matter what "side of the table" you are sitting on, issues are brewing. Concerns are growing. Tension is rising.
ACTION STEP: Take a moment this week (today!) and open up the conversation inside of your IEP team about ONE issue that has been keeping you up at night.
You don't have to tackle every issue, in every conversation.
Parents - maybe you need to finally...
If you sit at an IEP table, this checklist is for you! Parents, teachers, therapists and support team members... you can all use this tool for your next IEP meeting!
