Excellent advice! We are in our 2nd year of an IEP and the communication you establish before and after the IEP is critical. I don’t always do a good job of reading all the detail of the IEP though. I need to do better with that.

Great point on “There should be no surprises ”— this is exactly the approach I used in the corporate world with performance reviews. It applies to IEP’s as well. I hadn’t thought of it that way until I read your piece. Thanks!
