STUDENT LED IEP MEETINGS
Transcript of STUDENT LED IEP MEETINGS
WHAT IS A STUDENT-LED
LESSON PLANS TO TEACH STUDENTS AND PARENTS HOW CONDUCT A STUDENT-LED IEP MEETING
NOW A STUDENT, AND THEIR FAMILY WILL BE ABLE TO SUCCESSFULLY ADVOCATE FOR THEMSELVES WHILE GAINING VERY IMPORTANT LEADERSHIP SKILLS THAT THEY WILL USE IN RUNNING THEIR OWN IEP MEETINGS, AS WELL AS FOR ADVOCATING FOR THEMSELVES IN ANY OF THEIR FUTURE endeavors!!
This is when a student takes control of there own IEP meeting and leads discussion on their present levels of performance, yearly goals and objectives, transition plans, special services, and accommodations.
WHY WOULD WE WANT STUDENT'S TO LEAD THEIR OWN IEP MEETINGS?
HOW CAN WE IMPLEMENT STUDENT-LED IEP MEETINGS
1. Encourage parent and student participation in every relevant meeting.
2. Advocate for students to become included in making decisions that directly affects their education.
3. Train all appropriate staff to know and understand the importance of having student-led IEP meetings.
1. The time frame for implementing student-led IEP meetings will depend on the student and their ability to self advocate effectively.
2. Student's should be able to advocate for themselves throughout their high school careers, building effective advocate tools that can be used in the post secondary world.
1. The appropriate person should take a class or training on writing and implementing IEPs, and relay this knowledge to parents and students.
2. A training on how to effectively teach your students how to successfully advocate for themselves.
How will student-led IEP meetings empower students to own their disability?
Helping students understand the important part of self advocacy with their educational and social needs will better prepare them for doing the same thing when they further their education or join the work force.
Will student-led IEP's meet legal requirements?
YES!! There will still be the student's case manager, special educator, and a representative from your local education agency to ensure that all the pertinent and legal aspects of the IEP are covered. These individuals will also be used as a resource to assist the student, the family and the rest of the IEP team if questions arise.
How will we educate families about the IEP process?
How are you going to overcome cultural differences in student-led IEP's?
Prior to any meeting, especially ones that are student-led, every person involved in the IEP process or whom is on the IEP team, will have an appropriate training on the ethical and cultural differences that could and will encounter through out the IEP and educational process
By the time families and students have entered the secondary level of education they typically know the ins and outs of the IEP process. For anyone (parents, guardians, students, or educators) who have questions on this process, the special education department will host informational meetings when necessary.
AVAILABLE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
