An Individualized Education Program (IEP) provides a detailed blueprint for the entire academic career of a student with disability and ensures that the student receives the free and appropriate public education (FAPE) that is guaranteed by federal law (Section 504). Getting a student's IEP right is a matter of critical importance and requires IEP team members to make the absolute most of their annual team meetings, where the student's IEP is developed, reviewed, and revised based on the student's progress and needs.

All too often, IEP meetings are stressful, even contentious events that families and professional team members come to dread. Family members especially may leave IEP meetings feeling anxious and frustrated rather than confident and reassured. This is most often the result of poor communication, collaboration and/or preparation. Better IEP Meetings: Everyone Wins is an indispensible resource that provides IEP team members with clear, structured guidance that will help them revamp ineffective IEP meetings, improve upon good ones, or get started on the right foot. 

Authors Cynthia M. Herr and Barbara D. Bateman provide readers with expert guidance and strategies in the following three key areas:

  • Preparing for the meeting
  • Conducting the meeting and developing a legal and educationally sound IEP
  • Ensuring the provisions required by special education law are implemented after the meeting

Readers will learn ways of fostering positive communication among IEP team members, who may include parents, psychologists, social workers, special educators, guidance counselors, speech therapists, occupational therapists and other professionals. By following the book's guidance, this team will be able create a comprehensive, effective, legally binding educational plan that will be of maximum benefit to the child with special needs.
