If you think your child is not making “effective progress,” ask for a Team Meeting. At the meeting tell the Team your child may need a change to their IEP or a different placement.
An independent evaluator can help you understand if your child’s IEP and placement are helping. The evaluator can:
- Review your child’s school records,
- Test your child, and
- Observe them in the classroom.
Talk to other people who work with you child outside of school. Talk to people like therapists and mentors. Ask them what they think your child needs to make effective progress.
