Poll: When An IEP Leader Tells You They Have PUSH-IN Services. What Does That Mean To You?

Poll: When An IEP Leader Tells You They Have PUSH-IN Services. What Does That Mean To You?

How many times do I have to stop and ask IEP team to explain vocabulary to me so I can stay on the same page?

push in means that the therapist is going to go to the class and support/use the classroom activities for therapy. Your child should not leave the class. Pull out is when they take them from the class to have individual time.

Please be sure any verbiage that is put in your child's IEP, you understand, if your district uses language that you are not familiar with, ask them to write it in a parent friendly term so that you can always go back and understand the meaning in the IEP (YOUR child's contract with the school system). It take many years to learn all the acroymns that are used in IEPs. Don't ever feel uneducated if you don't understand the meaning to things in an IEP meeting. And always know you are the expert on your child and an equal member in that meeting. :)

@CBP, that's what I thought because where we lived last that is how they used push-in aka student is mainstreamed. But today, this district, meant that the speech therapist comes into the classroom aka group speech therapy. To use terms like PUSH IN and PUSH OUT in a IEP meeting can confuse new parents. If only we all had access to google during our meetings!
