When parents, school staff, and those participating in the IEP planning process prepare students effectively to participate in their IEP meetings the students learn self-advocacy skills and take an active role in their own IEP development.

During this training parents will engage in strength based activities as well as take home many great tools and strategies to involve their child in the IEP Process.
