Q. This will be my first CSE Meeting for my 9 year old daughter. I have attended many trainings about what my child's rights are and I feel prepared, yet I am nervous. Do you have any last minute tips to be sure that I am not missing anything?
Absolutely...even for parents that have been attending CSE meetings for many years there is always need for preparation. Here are 5 tips to remember before walking into a CSE Meeting.
We recently had the converstion with our son about his learning strengths and weaknesses. We are trying to help him to understand how the IEP is a document to help him, but we are having a very difficult time explaining this to him. Do you have any suggestions?
This is a common question that we get from parents of adolescent children. We often recommend a tool call the "Draft IEP
Interactive Tool". It is a great device that you can use along with your son that helps him to identify what
he perceives as his learning style, his strengths, and areas of weakness. In turn, he identifies what assistance he feels he needs to reach his goals now and in the future.
