Here is a comment I posted to a blog about preparing for an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) meeting:
Here’s is a tip I heard about in a meeting of Disabilities Services Coordinators from a number of Universities and Community Colleges in Pittsburgh:
If you have a child who is a Junior or Senior in high school and you are tracking them for a specific community college or university, invite the Special Education Coordinator (or whatever they are called at that school) to one of your IEP meetings. This allows them to get an idea of how your family works, what the child’s educational environment has been and what their current development is. This allows your family and their office to work much more efficiently and smoothly to make your child’s post-secondary school experience as successful as possibly.
w00t for working inside a complex system!
Your official job title is “NerdHerder”. What does that entail?
Until we can get the electrodes wired into their seats, I’m forced to pace around my team with a big stick.
