Say the Right Thing: A Guide for Responding to Parents' IEP Requests

Price: $39.95


By Gerry Klor

An offhand remark at an IEP meeting can lead to misunderstandings with parents … or worse, costly litigation. This unique guide helps you avoid IEP meeting blunders by dissecting 53 possible parental requests for special education services – so IEP team members can work through tough legal and emotional issues before the IEP meeting.

Printed on loose-leaf pages for quick copying for team members, each request gives you: legal principles that should guide your decisions; model language for a legally sound response; and questions to help the team reach consensus.

Your teams can customize their meeting preparation to address requests most likely to arise for each child, and plan ahead to handle parents’ requests for:

  • Independent evaluations
  • Access to records
  • Assistive technology
  • One-to-one assistant
  • Audiology services
  • School nurse services
  • Revoking consent to services
  • And dozens more topics
