IEP meeting at the Parent – Teacher conference in Missouri public school

Public schools often position events for their conveniencersz_supplementary1-300x199 Sometimes parents are misled to think they have to follow the school’s decision when the school’s actions are not consistent with state regulations. For example, a parent is contacted by e-mail that the IEP meeting will be held “tonight” at the “Parent-Teacher conference”.  “Parent-teacher conferences” are not the same as an IEP meeting.  Sufficient notice must be given to a parent(s) within a reasonable amount of time, and, a parent is allowed to reschedule at least once.

IEP meetings aren’t only way to get better schooling for IEP student in Missouri

Parents who struggle with the public school often get the “spin” from the building staff and don’t realize that often the power to take more control of the problem situation is outside the district.  Many entities exist that are ready to accept reports of public institutions that are not providing adequate access or appropriate programming.

Advocates at Special Education Parent’s Advocacy Link dba TheIEPCenter.com™ support parents who have schooling problems by providing information so the parent can advocate for the child with special needs. Schools often don’t put plans into place legitimately unless a parent pursues action. Action can involve systems outside of the school district.   It’s what a parent doesn’t know that can deprive children of needed services.  Our advocates are available to participate in school meetings after consult*.steeringwheeldashboardwoman2pics

Don’t be bamboozled!  Waiting and hoping for problems to go away allows our children to regress.  Hoping the problem will go away will only delay getting the problem addressed.  Waiting too long to address concerns eliminates opportunities for correction.

Special Ed frustrations for parents in Missouri schools

Paraprofessionals:
Is a paraprofessional assisting your child in any way during the school day? Many times the para is the second adult in a classroom.


Many school districts instruct paraprofessionals to avoid conversation with parents, and, do not share with the paraprofessionals the relevant information on the IEP that would assist the paraprofessional from understanding goals for the child. Many districts do not allow paras to attend IEP meetings on school time.


What can a parent do?  Parents can directly share an IEP with the paras, set up email communications with teachers that cc: the para(s), and directly invite paras to IEP meetings. 
Paras often know more about our kids than the teachers who are often overwhelmed. 
Paras and teachers are greatly appreciated!
