Did you know that there is a section of the IEP Called Parental Concerns? This section of the IEP allows parents to document all the areas of needs and concerns that you you have for your child. Please join us to discuss how to format and document your Parental Concerns. Does your child have problems with reading, math, writing, behaviors, or social skills? Does your child need support with organization or completion of homework independently? Does your child have difficulty with handwriting or speaking clearly? We will help you create a list of all your concerns in a very concise and organized manner and provide a template outlining all the areas that can be addressed in your parental concerns. We will explain the importance of parental concerns being sent to the district prior to the IEP meeting so that these concerns can be discussed with the IEP team. The IEP is a legal document, so it is your right to have these concerns written in the IEP.
