I am currently working in a day treatment program and taking graduate courses in Special Education. I have an assignment in which I am to interview various peaple about IEPs and IEP meetings. I am looking for answers from either parents or advocates of children in special education. If anyone would be willing to take a few minutes to answers these questions, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
Please tell me a bit about yourself. How long have you been attending IEP meetings, what is your child's disability, grade level or age.
Briefly tell me in your own words what you think the purpose is of IEP meetings.
What is your role in IEP meetings?
What have you learned about the special education process through these meetings? What are your personal thoughts regarding them?
How beneficial do you feel IEP meeting are to you (1-10, 10 being very beneficial). Why?
How beneficial do you feel IEP meetings are to the student (1-10). Why?
How do you feel when you walk out of a meeting? What is the best part? What is the worst?
