Parent Participation

As a parent you play a vital role in the special education decision making process. The most important role you play is being involved with the our child's individual Education Progran (IEP) Team. The IEP team is charged with addressing issues such as eligibility, evaluation, program development, and placement of a child in special education programs. All of these issues are significant components of your childs education. As parents we also provide critical input that only we can bring because we know our kids better than anyone else and have the most complete understanding of our child's physical, social, developmental, and family history Many parent's underestimate the importance of the role thy play on their child's education team. Despite their importance in education decision making, parents sometimes feel overwhelmed by the IEP team process. Some feel that the team members perceive them as less knowledgeable about teaching; less important than the educators in the meeting or as obstacles to the decision-making process, especially if they disagree with the educators. While you may not be educator, you bring years of experience in other professions and aspects of life to the process. in addition, parents are the only adults in the educational process who have been and will continue to be deeply involved throughout our child's school career. Do not underestimate your importane! If you need help understanding the special education process or support as you move forward, please contact us. We are glad to help.
