Empowering families to advocate for themselves so that children with special educational needs can reach their full potential in education and life - through support, training, and education. 
Back to School and the IEP Process

Before you know it, kids will be back in school!  And, as school begins, so does IEP season.  There are a few important things to remember about your child's IEP before school starts.  

First, if a child has an IEP, it is in effect as soon as school begins.  

 

Second, you can request an IEP meeting at any time.  This is especially true if you are concerned about the new school year.  

 

Third, MPACT is here to help!   


MPACT has Fact Sheets about the IEP process and several of these fact sheets can be found below.
