It’s easy to feel overwhelmed during ‘IEP Season’, but you don’t have to be a superstar (or suddenly have more planning time) to develop IEPs that will serve your students well all year long. Thinking of an IEP as a Leadership Tool can minimize needless stress and help ordinary people work together to develop extraordinary IEPs.
Once in a while I read an article that is so useful, I think everyone should read it. I recently found such on article that addresses the topic of procedural errors in the IEP development process. On the surface, it sounds like old news. Procedural errors... hmmm... obviously we want to avoid them. However, the way this article is written sets it apart from many others that tend to induce sleep rather than provide relevant guidance. What is this article and why should you share it with every professional who serves on an IEP team in your school system?
