Your child may have developmental delays, hearing or sight limitations, or attention deficit issues. And, it is so scary sending them off to a typical school when you know that they have a disability and that they may struggle to achieve.
The good news is that you can establish an Individual Education Plan (IEP) for your child. An IEP will allow you to actively work with school administrators to make sure that your child is assessed and has the educational support and services that they need.
An IEP will require your effort, planning, compromise, and tenacity.
And, although we have a few feel-good stories in this newsletter, not all IEP stories are fairy tales and pixie dust; just know that IEPs are a tool that you can use and a way to advocate for your child in their academic settings.
