This practical book guides teachers and other school personnel in working with parents as a team to design, review, and modify individual education plans (IEPs) for children with special needs. The goal is for parents and school personnel to work collaboratively and to achieve decision-making by consensus. This way IEPs can best serve the children for whom they are designed. The book details how to hold an ideal IEP meeting, and it explains how to prevent and resolve the conflicts that often arise. The author provides practical techniques for meeting management, conflict prevention, and conflict resolution. The book also contains 25 well researched ""intervention options,"" and checklists and outlines of how people can communicate better.
