Description: Regular IEP meetings can provide reassurance for everyone involved, or they can spark negative feelings and cause participants to lose confidence in the IEP process. In this book, Dr. Cynthia Herr and Dr. Barbara Bateman carefully consider how to make your IEP team meetings better. This book presents a clear, three stage framework: 1) Preparing for the meeting; 2) Conducting the meeting and developing a legal and educational sound IEP; 3) Ensuring the provisions required by FAPE are implemented after the meeting.
