Last school year the high school had a wonderful half-day program to help students prepare for life after high school (transition). Vocal parents of the children who just graduated made sure the program existed.
This year the program no longer exists. Students are encouraged to be dismissed after the regular half-day. Hmmm.
Parents need to be aware how many minutes of service(s) is listed on the IEP and make sure it is a full day if that is what the student expects/needs.
Advocates at The IEP Center help parents solve IEP problems by providing information so they can advocate for the child with special needs. 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.
Never go alone to an IEP meeting; our advocates are available!
