IEP - Enhancing Results

IEP Enhancing Results

Session Description

IEPs - Is it yet another mandatory meeting?  Or can we make it an opportunity to collaborate to further impact the outcome for the student?   

At every IEP meeting, key individuals with vast experience bring to the table their specific insights of the student. 

In this interactive session, you gain a tool for identifying factors that can contribute to the IEP team’s efforts to develop a plan that will enhance student outcomes.
