Inclusive Education Project Podcast

After you’ve created your child’s IEP along with the IEP team and agreed upon the goals, how can you ensure that the IEP team carries out their responsibilities? There are various actions you can take to keep track of your child’s progress while working with the school and teachers to make sure everyone is on the right track.

In this episode, we share some of the top ways to ensure that your child’s IEP team is held accountable and the IEP goals are met.

What We Discuss in this Episode:

  • Make sure the IEP is as clear and specific as possible
  • Agree on how the goals are going to be measured
  • The clearer and more defined the goals and terms are, the more likely they will be carried out more accurately
  • What can you do, as a parent, to observe first-hand whether the goals are being completed?
  • If you disagree with reports that you receive, what do you do then?
  • What can a teacher do to ensure they’re closely tracking progress and providing accurate reports?
  • You might not always receive accurate information from your child about what they accomplished during the day, so who should you reach out to instead?
  • The importance of teachers keeping logs
  • What can you do if you’re requesting your child’s records but you’re not receiving them?
  • Don’t wait until the annual review to ask for a meeting or an update
  • Why it’s important to have all of your wishes written in the IEP
