The Power of a Written Follow up Letter
The law gives parents POWER to use in educational decisions for your child. Don't be afraid to use it!
Write a follow-up letter to document disagreements, procedural errors, untruths, misstatements at the IEP meeting.
Your follow-up letter is more important than the notes you keep.
