Takeaways: Join me as I talk with my husband about the Who, What, When, Where, How and Why of the IEP Meeting

IEP Meetings can be intimidating.  This episode takes the stress out by bringing basic, easily laid out information on what the meetings are, who attends them, why they occur, when they occur, where they are, and how they are scheduled.  Sometimes the meeting is the most intimidating part of advocating for a child with a special education plan.  My husband , Brandon, joins me in this episode as we reflect back on our journey as parents in special education thus far.  He provides information as a parent that’s been at the table.  

Guest Info:
