IEP and Autism

Posted on March 02, 2018

Most autism parents with a child in public school will find themselves figuring out an IEP (Individualized Education Program) - a plan with school officials for the child to receive specialized instruction and services. Creating a plan, coordinating with teachers, and ensuring the school follows the IEP can be an exhausting job for a parent. The stress can be compounded by changes in teachers, principals, or budgets each year.

On MyAutismTeam, the social network and online support group for parents of kids with Autism, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few threads about IEPs:

Any ideas for an IEP advisor?

What questions should I ask at an IEP meeting?

I was told my son could not get an IEP. What are the next steps?

I'm about to start the IEP process with the school my son is currently enrolled in. ​​​​
