Tips for First IEP Meeting

Today Special Needs Bliss offers its tips for parents attending their first IEP meeting. Nothing too shocking here. The list recommends parents make sure all parties are in attendance, write down any questions, know their rights and "not feel bad about having to stand up for your child's rights."

This will be an ongoing question for Special Needs Rides, but what do you see as the essential tips for transporters attending their first IEP meeting?

Also online this week:
  • The Notebook argues Pennsylvania needs a new funding system for educating students with disabilities.
  • Two takes on changes coming to special needs schools in New Jersey's Cumberland county.
  • And a one-of-a-kind Autism program in Delaware draws praise, but faces challenges.

We want this to be an open forum for the hundreds of thousands of people that are involved in transporting special needs students each day. We want to hear what you think, what's going on at your facility and what solutions you've found. But, please, keep it civil. Just like on the bus, we'll have no tolerance for attacks or anything defamatory. We won't write you up, but we'll delete the comments right away. So don't bother. But if you have something to share, this is your place.
