Does your child have an Individualized Education Program (IEP)? Here’s what you can do to start the year off the right way. 1. Read your child’s IEP. Be familiar with the accommodations the school should be providing. 2. Write an introduction letter. Introduce your child to his teachers on paper. Tell them how he performs best and describe unique qualities that the teacher should know about your child. 3. Hand deliver a copy of your introduction letter and your child’s IEP to his teachers. Try to schedule a meeting either before the start of school or in the early weeks. You can confirm your child’s schedule and talk about accommodations with his teacher. 4. Review the IEP with your child. Tell your child what accommodations he should be getting in class. Depending on his age, tell him how to remind his teachers to provide his accommodations. 5. Schedule a Progress Review Meeting with the Child Study Team. Schedule a meeting with the child study team for October to review implementation of the IEP. Talk about what is working in your child’s new classes and what can be improved upon. 6. Keep communication open. Let your child’s case manager know what is working for your child as well as what is not.
